Yes, the Avett Brothers embarrassed themselves. I don't think the banjo ever did get properly tuned or he just kept knocking it out of tune with his "style" of playing.

On Sunday, Amos Lee and James Hunter blew me away...among others.

When I was last there (2003), there was more emphasis on World Music...Xavier Rudd from Australia, Baka Beyond from West Africa & UK, Plena Libre from Puerto Rico, Led Kaapana from Hawaii, BeauSoleil from New Orleans...

My point being that they (Fred Kaiser & team) don't follow the same formula each year, which makes it even more amazing...
