Subject: RE: Philadelphia Folk Festival
Good points Greg!   My only disapointment was the Avett Brothers. Maybe they just had a tough night, but I really did not think they were ready for the mainstage.

I love the fact that Philadelphia Folk Fest encompasses a wide variety of styles. There are other festivals that do a good job at catering to their niche audience, but an event like Philadelphia really should serve as a "buffet" that offers a taste of something different. While I may not like everything I hear, I always know that I will hear something different and new at Philly - in addition to old favorites.

It will be interesting to see what the next 45 years bring!
