Podcast: After the Hurricane, Effects of Irma and Harvey on art fairs

NEXT PODCAST: After the Hurricane, 10am ET, Fri., Sept. 22

Found on the forum on

I would imagine any shows scheduled for this fall are being cut. It will take months for Florida's infrastructure to come back. 

Do you agree? Are you cancelling art festivals along the Gulf Coast? Wait a minute. Before you do that listen to these show directors as they sort out the impact of the storm on their festivals.

We are doing a show in Nashville this weekend and wil not be able to listen to the podcast...but I will certainly download it when we return home next week. As a person who has been a flood victim twice i can sympathize with all those affected by the recent floods. I most certainly hope the shows are able to survive and most importantly the massive number of show visitors who might have been flooded or damaged as well

Thank you! Not sure why I couldn't get the show to play until near the end. Must have been on my part. I'll listen to the recording.
