Ma riposa: A festival
of fine folk music

('siontiuetfom Poat0006)
imitior to this year's festisal.
'Where were yous when the rain
hit?" tons probhably the m 05s 1
iii'ersalhy asked qusestiton fes-
alihgosers asked each other as
uss'tailed for the ferryboat tos
ike them back into thse city on
S today night. After a beasutiful
Idty, a susdden sorm struck
is ithiotwtrning at about a i x
'ctiock sin Saturday, which not
otly cortailed festival activities
nit crested alt manner of prnb-
lats since the festival is held
isi in island which comprises
i tart of Toronto's park system
ttsd is serviced by only one fee-
shboal. No one can prove it, of
citirse, but just hefore the storm
cowmenideed, Taj Mahal w asa
itoing a workshotp on work-songs
i-sd field hollers, where he did
rchant whoae chorous went,
Shiake 'em on down." Sure
cnou gh, a few drops actually did

citmssodustn bcefore ihe retiltin-
sla'ught ctommoenced -perhnps
Tajii hcasinore toiwer thatn that
'to' timed in his guitar.
Wbhat was protbably more im-
sportatat thIis yeatr's festival
than has been tit any otther, was
not the oermnally scheduled ae-
tiv-ity bitt the informal encttunt-
crs whi'h tosik place in transit
hetwseensostiskhops. In fact,
Mariposo really totoksin the spir-
t itt the Renaissance Faires in
Lass Asngeles daring the halcyon
idays itt the sixties. Strolling
minstrels, gr osps at English
Morris dancers and Frenoch-Can-
adian cltigers in calsirful c o a -
limes, a one-man puppet show,
craft booths, even a leather-np-
rutned broom-maker who loked
as5 if he'd stepped straight out
itt thoe Nevititionary War era,
ill added a dimensiton which
macic Maripsisa more thatn just
toolber mussic festival.
