Friday at the Fest


Today there’s an obstacle in my planning. I’m interviewing Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush along with local bandmembers Annie Clements and Travis McNabb at 1:15 p.m. in the Allison Miner Music Heritage Stage. That jams me up for BeauSoleil, Frankie Ford and Truth Universal, who I was looking forward to seeing. So I recommend all three even if I won’t actually be there. What else might I see?
