top 7 Folk Fest artists I saw for the first time this weekend

1. The Spinning Leaves
2. Erin McKeown
3. Vienna Teng (f/ Alex Wong)
4. the subdudes
5. The Giving Tree Band
6. Richard Thompson
7. Cadillac Sky

Honorable mention goes to Taj Mahal (who I'd seen before but never really appreciated until this weekend), Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams (who I love every time I see them), and Chris Smither (who I appreciate every time I see him). Dishonorable mention goes to Bonny "Prince" Billy, who ties with Kimya Dawson as the single worst artist I've ever seen at Folk Fest!

Off to listen to some music and buy some CDs online now...
