Thom Swift onstage in Officers Square, Friday afternoon.

Fredericton's Keith Hallett band on stage in Mojo Tent. Watermelon Slim watching from the backstage wings. Keith, at age 17, is this year's Galaxie Rising Star.

The incredible Homemade Jamz' Blues Band from Tupelo, MS: Ryan Perry, 15, on double-barrel Ford muffler lead guitar; brother Tyler, 12, on bass; and li'le sister Taya, age 8, on drum kit. Truly incredible!

An "official" festival street busker with Caribbean steel drum.

Jim Blewett on guitar, and someone I don't know, ["Mic McNeely, a retired hippy," said Jim to me Saturevening at the sold out "The Doctor Is In" / Dr John concert] on upright bass.

The incredible Watermelon Slim & the Workers (from Oklahoma) with special guests John Campbelljohn and Rosevelt Lee on steel pedal guitars plus Roxanne Potvin on electric guitar.

Rockin' out the Afterburn show in the early hours of today was Matt Mays and El Torpedo. The Barnetteville girls were up front as close as they could get to the stage (and I never saw them during the show. Give 'er!
