the folk-fest 2009 crew
it did not stop...
nor let up...
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.
Great Lake Swimmers
It was all enough to make your hair fall out from excitement.
