    Why I'm Going to Kindiefest 2010

    When I mentioned previously that registration for Kindiefest was open, I wasn't 100% sure that I was going myself. I mean, I had lots of fun last year, and this year promises to be even better (more panels, a keynote, a chance to hear 14 different artists playing live). But it's a really long flight from Phoenix, and a weekend away from the family essentially working.

    Having said all that, I'm going. And now the panel I was asked to moderate is starting to take shape, I might've been willing to go to Brooklyn for that experience alone. The panel "Old School Meets New School," will talk about the generations of family musicians -- those who've been doing it for 3 years and those who've been doing it for 30 -- and their perspectives on making music for families in today's world. At the moment, the panel includes Elizabeth Mitchell, Suni Paz, and Bill Harley. Not to mention Kids Corner's Kathy O'Connell. (And I don't think the panel's quite complete.)

    Yeah. You read that right. My chief goal in being moderator will be shutting up and not getting in the way.

    Anyway, earlybird registration for the conference ends next Monday, so if you haven't seen the burgeoning list of speakers and artists, I encourage you to do so. See you in Brooklyn.

    Wish I could go esp. since I've never been - I have to go on a biz trip a few weeks later and with a baby, three year old and six year old it is just too hard - I leave town maybe once a year! I propose Chicago as next year's venue! C'mon, it's the home of Ella Jenkins, Ralph Covert and Justin Roberts! :)

    Yes, of course I"m always up for a Chicago meet-up but Brooklyn was pretty fun last year. I'm sure you'll be a great moderator!
