Daidogei has been a great experience, because we got to meet a different kind of audience, one that really enjoys watching me perform. It is a great pleasure that no other festival can achieve and out of the 9 festivals we, the Kramer family, have been to Daidogei is definitely one of our preferred, because of the great organization and wonderful volunteers.
Regarding the prizes, Daidogei is the only festival where any of the 3 prizes is a considerable amount of money for the artists, but if you do not get a prize, the hat money is also considerable. Daidogei was a great experience and I hope to go back soon.
Elayne Kramer and family
