May 10, 2003
|The 10th Anniversary of this fest, switched in 2003 to a single 3 day
weekend. These pictures are from Saturday.
The $10 daily admission was on the high side for area Fests. On the plus side, concession sales were cash (not tickets), prices were reasonable, especially bottled water for $1.50, and food selections were nicely varied. I had an elk burger, some tasty crawfish, and a fried twinkie.
Nice guitar performances by Chris, Joe, and Jonny, especially Joe, who was the standout of the three. But the set of the day was Shemekia Copeland, playing indoors at the Eisemann Center to a disappointingly small audience. Her voice was resplendant - she's always great, but hearing her sing with concert-hall acoustics was a true treat.
