I had good intentions of posting at least one blog during the folk festival, but sleep became the priority. It was a great festival – well organized, beautiful weather and superb music.
We had one evening of rain and a sprinkle of rain on one afternoon. Here is what our dining room looked like after we came home from the evening rain. Gotta dry out our gear somehow!
A few musical highlights (for me anyway) of the festival were
Noah and the Whale – http://www.noahandthewhale.com/home.php
Lissie – http://www.lissie.com/
Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros –You Tube video of \”Home\”
Matt Anderson –http://www.stubbyfingers.ca/ Also watch his You Tube video of “Ain’t No Sunshine”
There was a lot more great music than what I have listed. A few more greats were Garnet Rogers, Delhi2Dublin, Angelique Kidjo, The Deep Dark Woods, Andrew Bird, De Temps Antan, Baka Beyond, KT Tunstall and Etran Finatawa.

Another year’s festival is over……I’m catching up on my sleep……..and looking forward to next year.
