OK, quick (belated) clarification between the two perspectives on this story: MOST of the people in the audience were falling out of their chairs laughing. Possibly all of them. But the serious folkies in the audience probably felt honor-bound to take offense, and those are the people who decide who gets to perform at the festival. We haven't been asked back... but it was well worth it!
