“Garry has created a unique festival that celebrates the art of percussion from the world, it has been great fun to participate in it and I really enjoy seeing, hearing and meeting such a diversity of major talent from all over. I consider it to be very successful and look forward its ongoing cultural contribution to the richness of the Town of Woodstock and the Hudson Valley.”
