Yesterday I went to the Parnell Festival. I posted on my other site, ann-mythoughtsandphotos.

It was a great festival of Arts, Music, Food and Roses. The sun was shining.

I met two gentlemen, and when I came back, I felt sheepish because I was in a situation where this Chinese Quote is so appropriate," GOT EYES, YET COULDN'T RECOGNIZE TARZAN." I guess you know what I mean. Luckily I wasn't condescending and I didn't exactly put my foot in my mouth.

These two gentleman are Alan Pitts and Abdul-Satar. .

It was only after I posted last night that I googled Abdul and found out who he is.

This morning, M commented in my post.

Could you tell Dr. Tow (and also Alan Pitts, if you happen to see him again) about the annual NYC Musical Saw Festival, please? It would be great if they performed there. They can contact the festival through

This afternoon, I googled Alan and found that he was two times world champion and is known in New Zealand as a great musician.

Here am I, an Arts and Music ignoramus.

What fun. Reminds me of my old home state, Georgia. We have a lot of people in Georgia who still know how to play the saw. We also have people who are experts at playing a washtub.

Hi Ann,

Thank you very much for contacting the NYC Musical Saw Festival! It's an honor to learn about Alan through your post. All musical saw players are welcome at the NYC Musical Saw Festival, and if Alan ever came to participate it would be fantastic and a real treat!

To Patty (who left a comment above) - if you know any saw players in Georgia, I would be very greatful if you could let them know about the festival, please. Last July we had 54 musical saw players at the festival from all over the world - you can see videos at
