This past Friday Dem and I went to the Ann Arbor Folk Festival. We got tickets because we really wanted to see Jeff Tweedy (lead singer for Wilco). We like Wilco but always wanted to see is solo performance with just an acoustic guitar and as luck would have it he was performing in our backyard. His performance was even better than we had hoped for...we had amazing seats and he even played two songs without a microphone. However, the other bands we saw were really good as well. I tried to take some pictures and video but it was so dark that it just didn't work out. So instead I decided to just post videos from my two favorite bands that performed.
Carolina Chocolate Drops
Great band...probably the most entertaining group we saw. They basically play old time songs to current day hip hop all with banjos, fiddle, jug, clapping/stomping, etc. Its really cool.
He certainly did not disappoint with his performance. Great selection of songs that were performed flawlessly.
Today I got a haircut that was probably a month overdue...here is a picture from 10 days ago.
