The Nelsonville Music Festival, or the Ohio Serenade of the Cicadas

I've looked at the photos, and I'm seriously considering adding the Nelsonville Music Festival to my not-to-miss list for 2017. Great coverage, Amos. 

Great article, and wonderful pics, Steve Poltz' is too funny, and the one of Alex White makes her appear Medusa like, and Dave and Gillian bathed in blue (and as you noted, standing a bit back from the front of the stage) ...that isn't too far away from me...that festival sounds like a keeper for 2017.

Beautiful photos.

GREAT write-up!

LOVE the NMF - they do it so right.

you missed something you MUST know about. You mentioned the saw player that travelled to play a set, however there was another saw player in attendance that had her own set - day one, on the boxcar stage.

Angela Perley & the Howlin' Moons. A columbus, Ohio based group that tours 120+ nights a year and is winning friends and repeat audience members wherever they travel.
 

Angela regularly includes the SAW photo here: https://goo.gl/photos/j6EAjSpoxnLZ4E3C9  in her original songs, always with just the right amount of exposure. So PLEASE - do yourself a favor and catch this band when you can, their level of craftmanship, all original set list, unique and amazing sound.... well - you get the picture.

 

cheers - and agian, thanks for covering nmf.
