Saturday is the day for the official festival start, the gates opened at 11:00, at noon James Armstrong started it off and away we went.
With two stages and non-stop entertainment by some of the very best artists around there was too much to report – almost too much for snaps too.
Artists who graced the stages were Tom Townsley & Seth Rockford, Davina & The Vagabonds, Samuel James, Duke Robillard, Ann Rabson, Voice of the Wetlands Allstars, Bill ‘Sauce Boss’ Wharton, JJ Grey & Mofro.
But we managed to get some of the best of the best and hope that all of ya reading this come out next year – -
