You mean to tell us that Ascione/Vignola and Monheit can raise an audience
in a hick town like Albany (just kidding) by themselves in a single venue
without a Festival around them? :-) VBG

While many festivals cry the blues about how they don't know if a
"headliner" will draw or not?

Maybe a festival producer should just advertise A/V/M and throw in the
Festival as an added attraction. While advertising in both the AARP magazine
and Rolling Stone? :-) VBG.

BTW was their program as good as you anticipated?
