Both Harry Manx and Alpha Blondy were awesome last night. Tonight, however, is going to rule. Steve Earle is going to play, and damn can that boy deliver. I have heard rumour that it will be an acoustic set, which is different from how I saw him last year in Calgary. I wish he was here a little later in the Festival, however, because then the odds might increase for him to jam with either Ryan Adams or Alison Krauss. Last year, Earle played with Lucinda Williams, and it was amazing. I wonder if Adams and Kraus will play together? To be honest, I still expect Adams to throw a hissy-fit and bail on the show.

Guitar Town: Steve Earle
Lose Again: Alison Kraus
Let It Ride: Ryan Adams
Man of Constant Sorrow: Dan Tyminksi
Gonna Make You Love Me: Ryan Adams
Wade In The Water: Mavis Staples

As well as pretty much anything by Guy Davis. My favorite sessions are always the Blues jams. Gotta get my mojo workin'!
I am sure I am missing something here.
Hey Aaron Johnson! I miss you buddy! I owe you a ton of e-mails! Don't think for a second that I have forgot about you!
