Well, one weekend down, 6 more to go. KCRF opened this weekend, with a 3-day “marathon session” for Labor Day weekend. What have I learned? My feet and voice are probably just good enough for a regular 2-day weekend. :)
Today, I’m hobbling along on bruised feet (according to a past experiment by a Court Lady with a pedometer, the average mileage for a Court performer is just a hair over 11 miles a day, and I just did 3 days), not talking at all if I can help it (although I am proud to say that I was able to maintain tone and volume for the audience), and I’ve successfully washed the layers of Festival Dirt from my skin and hair, in time to celebrate Allie’s birthday today.
Basically, the weekend was spent entertaining something like thirty thousand people (and that’s considered a slow weekend. We draw nearly that much per day when we get rolling), drinking gallons of water, and making sure to eat salty food (to replace valuable minerals, dontcha know. It’s medicinal…purely medicinal).
I’ve only managed to find one page of photos from this weekend so far, and I don’t appear in any of them (you’re all crushed, I can tell). Click Here.
This week will be spent recovering my voice and my stamina, so that I can do it again this coming Saturday and Sunday.
