Summer's over

The Rhythm and Roots festival ended last night with Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys playing a packed tent. It was a tradtional end-of-festival jam with members of the Red Stick Ramblers, the Pine Leaf Boys, and Marty Stuart himself joining the raucous assembly.

Highlights of the festival for me included Marty Stuart's impromptu session with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, the Buddhahood horn section providing a boost for the Creole Cowboys, and a late night accordion jam with three young Creole and Cajun up-an-comers, Cedric Watson, Drew Miller and Corey Ledet.
