After a phenomenal time at this years 16th annual Suwannee Springfest, I’ve been re-living it through folks’ videos, photos, and words on the festival.

Honest Tune‘s David Shehi and Rex Thomson recorded some amazing sessions with many musicians at the Festival including Yonder Mountain, Donna the Buffalo, The Infamous Stringdusters, and more. Here’s a fun photo of their session with Tara Nevins and Jeb Puryear of Donna the Buffalo. Stay tuned to Honest Tune (www.honesttune.com) for  lots of fun stuff! … and remember to Vote Rex!

"A fantastic Springfest is now in the book. Now, we go to the editing room so that memories like this Donna the Buffalo backstage performance (& the Mosier Brothers one that followed) can live on forever." --- David Shehi, Honest Tune

“Find of the festival? I have to say we loved Lizzy Ross and her band, and not just because they hail from Chapel Hill North Carolina. She totally rocked. Run don’t walk to iTunes and get some for yourself…The Lizzy Ross Band, ” writes the Fly Fish Chick in her blog about the fest.

Festgrrl writes, “Elephant Revival: Wow. Young band, fresh, arresting sound, soulful picking, intriguing arrangements, and the startling lead singer-washboard/djembe/musical saw player Bonnie Paine’s haunting voice — I hate to compare such a gorgeous instrument to anyone else, but it sounded to me like a cross between Natalie Merchant  and Nora Jones. Actually, she sounds exactly like herself.” Read her full post about the festival HERE. Stay tuned for videos of the band’s originals…in the meantime check out this fun one with Vince Herman (Great American Taxi) sitting in with them:
