Cal Herrmann, ScD and family, - at work and at home.
Lani recently participated in a
group effort that produced
"In Harmonys Way," a CD recording with 17 other Bay Area singers, and has become
an annual Christmastime event at the Freight and Salvage Coffee House in Berkeley,
high-energy and fun!
For more information, including biographies and lyrics,
see In Harmonys Way.
Lani and Cal toured the West Coast, in concerts presented
by the San Francisco
Scottish Fiddlers, in the late spring!
We attended the 31st year anniversary gathering of the
Portable Folk Festival.
