The Word From Wannee
Well start out the news today with a report on the Wanee Festival which took place over the weekend at the Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL. The show was anchored by the Allman Brothers Band and their extended family. Wannee offered two stages of silmultaneous music (which at times led to some difficult choices as on both Friday and Saturday nights, the Derek Trucks Band and Govt Mule performed at the same time). In addition, as one might expect there were plenty of sit-ins: John Popper, for instance, who appeared with the John Popper project on Saturday, also joined the Allman Brothers Band during You Don’t Love Me, the Derek Trucks Band for To Know You Is To Love You and Govt Mule for 32/20 Blues. That same day Ron Holloway also pulled the trifecta by lending his sax to the ABB during In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed and Southbound, to the Mule during Sco Mule and Blind Man In The Dark, and also to the Derek Trucks Band for To Know You Is To Love You. The official festival web site: proclaims, Thank You for coming…See you next year! so the event may well return in 2006.
