Having criticized the festival last year, let me second Paul's compliments. It was a wonderful weekend, from Lisa Schneckenburger Friday night to Jimmy and Ada McCown on Sunday afternoon. It was full of wonderful little moments, discovering new performers (Bill Smith and Don Woodcock), rediscovering old favorites (Mangson/Gillette and Jez Lowe), and walking by Animaterra's site and hearing the harmonies emanating from within (that's about the fiddle/accordion music, oh ye of filthy minds!). Great weekend, despite the occasional boob who couldn't get his/her mind around the difference between low and high seating. Fine job by John and the other talent wranglers.
