Live Music:
• Hayseed Dixie (Sunday afternoon only) – personal friends of the festival, the Hillbilly hellraisers who hail from from Deer Lick Holler, Tennessee, headline this year’s ChilliFest. Will Barley Scotch enter the hot chilli pepper eating competition - has he the cajones?
We’ll see...
• Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three – “Lawd knows we need people like Pokey LaFarge. Coming on like a bastard son of Woody Guthrie and Blind Blake, this is the kind of stuff Ry Cooder’s been trying to do for decades: "no-holds-barred, honest-to-goodness sheet-kicking music of the highest order" Uncut
• Water Tower Bucket Boys – Portland, Oregon four piece old time/bluegrass fusion – with balls. These guys rawk!
• Morgan O’Kane & Ferd 4 – these intensely talented banjo and fiddle Scum-billy critters from Charlottesville/Brooklyn are no strangers to the festival. These dudes are the real deal – and Morgan has an excellent brand new CD.

I may not make it along to chillifest because i will be recovering from working Saturday night but i live in hope!
