the folk-fest 2009 crew


from dawn...


until dusk...


it did not stop...


nor let up...


music...
music...
music...

There were many new-found treasures and treats.
Iron and Wine did not disappoint and began his set by covering a Postal Service favorite... Such Great Heights. Sitting atop a hill with Arden I just about died.
For those of you who were wondering, Arden lost the beard competition with Iron and Wine. Mostly because Arden chose that under the scorching August sun it was time to shave and well... Sam Beam didn't.


Other new & old found musicians:
Jill Barber... brought with her one the most talented violinist I have EVER seen. One that whipped out so many skills I whipped off my sunglasses and leaned unnaturally forward on my chair. Skills such as those should be outlawed. I was adequately humbled and inspired.
Tracy Chapman
Kathleen Edwards
Sarah Mclachlan
Meaghan Smith
Danny Michel
Great Lake Swimmers
Neko Case
Patty Griffin
Bela Fleck
Eivør

It was all enough to make your hair fall out from excitement.

"AHHHHHH!" Yup. That's what I was doing while you were listening to little music.
