Sunday at FloydFest 11 (“Lovers Rock”) boasted main stage performances by powerhouses Sam Bush, Bruce Hornsby, and Allison Krauss & Union Station. The side stages were awash with fans, too, with performances by The Rogues, The Steep Canyon Rangers, Ricky Skaggs, Darrell Scott, Morwenna Lasko and Jay Pun and the Love Canon String Band.
Lovers of Rock (and bluegrass, blues, Americana etc.) were not disappointed by this wonderfully organized, staffed and appointed festival. The FloydFest team just seems to set the bar for themselves a little higher each year and exceeds expectations.
While it’s time to shake the dust out of sleeping bags and pack the camping gear, there’s a lot of follow up we need to do with bands we haven’t had a chance to mention yet, including this year’s Under the Radar contenders.
It’s been our pleasure to share a little snapshot of FloydFest with you all.
If you were here, hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. If you missed it, hope you’re making plans to be here with us next year!
