Hi Deidre,

yes, I know since 2009 that there is the next international jew's harp festival in Hungary. Do you have a website link for that. I will be there if it isn't during my travel with Hosoo through Mongolia (Beginnging of July). And if it is not during David Hykes Denmark Retreat in August ... I will see - this festival has a very high priority.

Best,

Jens
