gkord is right

Mountain Jam last year was phenomenal, and two nights of it just makes it that much better. A nice Bonnaroo Appetizer, if I do say so myself!

Sounds like a terrific line-up, but for those who can't make it up to NY, they can catch Franti & Spearhead and Keller Williams, as well as Yonder Mountain String Band, Sam Bush, the Everyone Orchestra, Jimmy Herring w/ Jeff Sipe, and about 25 other acts the same weekend in North Carolina.

I went to this last year and had a great time. A very professionally run festival, and a lot of fun. The music was great, the day was perfect, and it was an easy place to meet up with friends. I brought my family including our twins who were just 3 and our newborn. It was a safe and friendly environment to have a great festival experience. I'm looking forward to returning with my whole family.

PEACE
