Unlike many festivals where the crowd packs up and leaves on Sunday, Delaware Valley, because it's held on Labor Day Weekend can hold onto people through the last day. That means that many people need pump outs, but here, the porta-potties were consistently the cleanest and best kept of any bluegrass festival we've ever attended. Furthermore, the day was filled with wonderful music, eight acts including two youth bands and six professional ones. The schedule carried through until 6:00 PM. Those who left early missed one of the great treats of 2015, but more about Sister Sadie later.
The day began with performances by two youth groups. The Cab Calloway School of the Arts is a selective public school in Wilmington Delaware which performed with enthusiasm and skill. They were followed by the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival Kids Academy directed by Ira Gitlin with a full staff of dedicated helpers.
