Take me back down to Green River
As I sit on the bed of my bed at the Brandt House, a beautiful bed and breakfast in Greenfield, I can hear Buddy Guy finishing his set a few miles away at the Green River Festival.
It was the most glorious weather day I've experienced at a festival which I always consider the mark of the hottest day of the year.
Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem were uplifting with their agnostic gospel music. Erin McKeown has proven herself to be a charismatic and consummate stage pro, handily taming a guitar that is almost as big as she is. Southern Culture on the Skids led the crowd through the back roads of the South, and Neko Case was magnificent.
After a meal at the People's Pint, sleep will be welcome.
