I was at the Mariposa Folk Festival all weekend. It was fabulous!!! Among some of the great acts were The Kruger Brothers (the most amazing bluegrass band you will ever see), Oh My Darling (4 lovely girls from western Canada), Steve Payne (superb blues player), Rose Cousins from the Maritimes, and Arlo Guthrie who did an absolutely delightful closing set. I expected him to be good, but he was way better than good.
The only thing I saw all weekend that wasn't very good was Randy Bachman, backed by The Sadies. I think Randy should stick to doing his radio show, because he's very good at that. Why the heck they brought him to Mariposa, I don't know...but I guess it got more people in through the gates. (and I do like quite a number of his hits...he's just not doing them very well anymore)
