Free show, 28 years ... that's the good news.
The bad news is that Russ says this will be his last. He and his wife plan to move to Seattle to be closer to his grandkids.
So enjoy the music this year.
And hey, Russ is still looking for sponsors to help pay for the shows. If you can help, or know someone who can, email him!
