Harvard Square Mayfair - Cambridge, MA

WHEN: Sunday, May 7th, 12-6PM
WHERE: on the street in Harvard Square (specific location undetermined, but you'll find me!)

WHAT: I participated in this event last year and though it rained for most of it, I did get some good voices and learned a few things like to use waterproof markers on the booth and to not delay epoxying it's edges any more. MayFair is a fun event to check out; they close down the streets of Harvard Square to cars and there are tons of vendors and performances on the street all over the place.



Number of voices recorded: 33
Reading sheets used: 15, 19
Weather: perfectly sunny but cool for May; just what you want when you have to hang out outside all day
Level of success: started off VERY slow, but then picked up to the normal frenzy
Records broken: this isn't really a broken record, but this event was the first that I was forced to erase older recordings on my hard disk recorder because it filled up. This means that I have over 20 gigabytes of recordings. Clearly there is something wrong with me...
Photos: Check them out

I always forget that these events take some warming up. For the first hour or so, there wasn't much interest, but as soon as things got going, it was non-stop. I was set-up right downwind from Cafe of India which made me hungry all day and taught me a bit about how to bake naan.

Thanks, as always, to my loyal helpers and supporters. This is not an individual undertaking.
