Remembering Huichica’s good times

We miss live music.

It was only a year ago that we were at the Huichica Festival near Walla Walla.

What a great time. This event featured top-name acts, wine, food and camping on a scenic farm tucked into the hills north of town.

We saw many fine acts, including Yo La Tengo, The Minus 5, Robyn Hitchcock and Waxahatchie, among many others. We drank excellent wine from some of Walla Walla's very best vintners, including Sleight of Hand.

It was a fun party -- something we miss dearly during the pandemic. Here's to hoping we'll be back celebrating at this fine event next year.
