Rain kids at DelFest

Rise and SHINE Campers!

The sun is out, Hoots & Hellmouth are on stage and we’re ready for the second full day of DelFest.

Last night’s main stage performances were incredible. I wasn’t sure, honestly, what to expect from Del McCoury and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, but even from the grandstand (where it was dry) the marriage of their two distinct and yet harmonious styles played out beautifully.

Last up on the main stage was Old Crow Medicine Show. Holy Mother of Bluegrass, that was a foot stomping, stage rocking good time. Wagon Wheel brought down the house. They were joined on stage at the end by Del and other members of the McCoury Band.

Sleeping is clearly not on the schedule at DelFest, as the late night performances ran until after 2 a.m. courtesy of Trampled by Turtles and
Railroad Earth.  No pics from that, but they’re both playing again today.

Did I mention that the SUN IS OUT?! Yippee
