Sweet's Mill (1974-1975) - sward
The 1974 camp at Sweet's Mill inspired people to play Balkan music at home. For instance,  Peter Ward started the band "Sviraći"  -- which practiced weekly in our living room in Menlo Park, CA.  Mike Gage, Lew Smith, Melissa Miller, Jim Little (and bass player Cliff Walters, not pictured) were early members. [Lew, Melissa, and Jim have continued Sviraći for decades.]
