The Lemonade Stand is Here!
Remember Lockdown Lemonade? It was a regular blog post that members of the FAR-West community used to talk about how they were making lemonade out of lemons during the pandemic lockdown.
“Lockdown Lemonade” is reconstituted lemonade, now known as The Lemonade Stand. We want to hear from YOU! Send your 300-word or less blog post about your experiences out in the world of folk music, how you’re transitioning, what’s new, what’s old, what’s confusing, what’s mysterious! Curated by FAR-West president, Susie Glaze, it will be available on the FAR-West website monthly.

Here is our first installment! We begin with a blog from Gail Dreifus, the driving force behind the Yosemite Songwriting Retreat, which is hosting its first live event this October since the onset of the pandemic curtailed live events in 2020. Gail is also a singer-songwriter and has her own reflections on how things have changed for her and how she took the “lemons” of the pandemic to create a new, evolved “lemonade” for her life as an artist.
