Musicians Against Childhood Cancer - Thursday: Cameo

Musicians Against Childhood Cancer creates an atmosphere unique to bluegrass festivals as it combines the best in music with a commitment to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. The much looked-for return of James King to the stage after some serious health issues closed the night in a clear triumph, and there were many other performances of note. The music is so good and the energy level so high that even in the height of afternoon sunshine it becomes difficult to break away for some shade or to make sure you stay hydrated. Low humidity, plenty of sunshine, and a temperature that never exceeded seventy-five degrees in the shade made it a perfect day for bluegrass.
