The Folk Fest Gods can only keep the rain away for so long, but that didn’t stop Sunday’s performers and fans from having an incredible day at Fest.  Here’s some highlights from the day.

Driftwood Soldier (photo above) played a set on the campground’s Front Porch Stage during a slight downpour; the crowd watched huddled under two tarps. Set rocked.

Two long-running gospel groups, The McCrary Sisters and The Fairfield Four teamed up as the gospel supergroup, Rock My Soul. High energy set, had a lot of people (including Folk Show host Ian Zolitor) on their feet and dancing.

Buckwheat Zydeco was unable to perform, as he is on doctor’s orders not to tour. But the fill-in was great: Buck’s band performed, fronted by C.J. Chenier and Buck’s son Sir Reginald B. Dural on rub board. They called themselves Sons of Legends.
