About Jonathan James

I am a long-time volunteer for the Spanish Peaks Celtic Music Festival, learning more every year about the tasks involved in making the Festival happen. This year I took on the job of administering the Festival, including the work on the website. Three years ago I could not have done this as I was still working as a school counselor. I am a Colorado native, and have lived in La Veta since 1991.
