 Alasdair Fraser, Scotland's premier fiddler and Californian cellist Natalie Hass were outstanding duo at National Folk Festival, Canberra with 112 groups or individual performers from the four corners. Non stop.
 And Gordie Mackeeman and his Rhythm Boys from Prince Edward Island were blistering as they say.
 Authentic folk music, world music and lots in between, dance, choral and instrumental workshops, bush poetry, Australian folk, Anzac tributes, then alternative fashions, trinkets, foods were the abundant market stalls. Camping at the site is popular and extensive. 
 Next year marks 50 years and organizers are gearing up for four days always at Easter.
 Weather is warm to rather chilly with a little snow arriving this morning somewhere on a local hill top, they say.
