McCoy Tyner is a living legend. Not sure if Liberals was trying to insult him or not, but he's the man. Played with Coltrane on the Love Supreme sessions. This lineup is outstanding, if I didn't go to school in Maine I would consider making the trip.

Great lineup! This year should be great because of the talent as well as the fact that it was moved to June. No September rains and muddy Town Park WooooHoooo!

So Liberals, the Neville Brothers and Dr John really don't have much of a resume I guess? I think the lineup is excellent and sure as shit if my sister lived in Telluride I would attend!
