so I guess this fest is paid for by Warren Hellman of Hellman's mayo fame.

He plays banjo and loves the music, so this is what he does with his fortune. got up on stage a few times to play along. I guess when you shell out that kind of cash you're allowed to get onstage with the legends.

This year was number 9 and by all accounts the most packed yet.

The audience was assured that it would continue into the future - by Warren and a couple of the artists too.

Saw Emmylou receive an honourary doctorate from Berklee before her set Sunday night.

Some HORRIBLE overlaps in the schedule, but such is life. :) sweet sweet life :)
