The author is Venezolano, but he wrote of the Salvadoreños – their history, as the history of Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and more, is heartbreaking…it is no wonder that Central Americans are coming here. We need to allow them in.

“Sweet’s Mill was a jewel in the crown really. There’s something so beautiful about the Central California location.” –Barry Olivier, Berkeley Festival Director
“We could be who we were. Extravagantly, we could celebrate it.” —Mac Benford, Highwoods String Band
“People do music because they have no choice. Some folks are put together so they can’t not pick tunes.” —Solomon Feldthouse, maestro
“We wanted a lot more cultural events than just music. All around life, you know, all the way through. Since people stayed longer, we wanted other things happening because some of them weren’t musicians. I tried to include as many kinds of art as we could.” — Virgil Byxbe, Sweet’s Mill Director
