The weather was perfect with three days of sun, blugrass and zydeco music at The Great Blue Heron festival. The first day we saw a couple of great performances by Kelly and The Cowboys, Slo-mo, John & Mary and The Valkyries, and the Sim Redmond Band.
On Saturday there was a drumming workshop with Jim Donovan (of Rusted Root.) About 40 people packed into the tent for 2 hours of a drumming.
Saturday also featured a performance by Big Leg Emma, Entrain, The Avett Brothers, and of course Donna The Buffalo with the last set of the evening.
Here’s a 2 sets for download from the festival from Jim McGee:
