Special Mention

Nigel Elmer was a big part of the planning of our first two festivals.  He was a constant positive presence on our Board and at Mistahiya.  Nigel unfortunately passed away in 2012, leaving behind a wonderful live music-producing legacy.

We strive to meet the standard that Nigel set for our music festival.  Thank you for your dedication Nigel.  You are dearly missed.

Here is a short tribute to our friend Nigel from the 2013 festival…
