Strangefolk’s ninth annual Garden of Eden festival took place this past weekend and the band has now added free audio clips of music from Eden to its web site. Strangefolk performed six sets during the festival, debuting some songs while offering new material such as Peter Gabriel’s ‘In Your Eyes,’ Pink Floyd’s ‘Fearless’ and The Beatles
‘Cry Baby Cry.’ Rob Wasserman, who hosted a bass clinic, guested with Zen Tricksters and Max Creek before joining Strangefolk on Sunday night for a version of ‘In Deep.’ Earlier that day, after receiving a challenge from the event’s promoter, the U-Melt performed a continuous set from 4AM to 10:30AM. Also of note, Strangers Helping Strangers topped its three-year old record for one food drive, bringing in an
estimated 4,100 non-perishable items to benefit the Franklin County Community Meals program.
