The Johnson City Folk Festival in Unicoi, Tennessee finishes 2013 with an exciting lineup, stellar performances and some knock-your-socks-off sets from remarkable, unknown new talent. This year's 3rd Johnson City Folk Festival braved the cold weather with wood stoves, excellent music and roaring fires on every stage.
The chill was in the air this year. But Mr. Winter couldn't match the enthusiasm, the talent, the stoves and the heaps and heaps of firewood Festival organizers brought to The Farmhouse Stage, The Pavillion Stage and Blacksmith Stage. Not this year, Mr. Winter.
Sure, it was a bit challenging, but all stages were wonderfully appointed with stoves, firewood and excellent sound. The Farmhouse Gallery and Gardens provided a buffet that was hot, delicious and filling - not one famished musician went hungry. Peacock Cafe served ham, BBQ, potatoes and soups and breads - the breads were made and baked right on the property and were fresh out of the oven... still hot!
There were some remarkable performances worth noting:
Additional sets by Andy Ferrall, Ben Knight and The Well Diggers, Pat Spencer and Peggy Ratusz rounded out a stellar line-up for 2013.
During the entire Festival the front gate was managed with grace and aplomb by the venerable Bamboo Bill whom the Festival organizers hope to have back in 20144 - he was a Festival Favorite!
