Merlefest 2008 - Sunday

Sunday at Merlefest is often a mellow day with gospel sets at the Creekside Stage and some quieter and more thought provoking music at other venues. The day was overcast, threatening rain all day, but staying warm. Despite a strong and varied lineup, many people became discouraged by the weather and headed home, foregoing hearing the Dan Tyminski Band, which closed the festival. Despite the weather there was much to enjoy and chew on. Here's some pictures, and I'll try to post a more comprehensive review later in the week.
