Try impossible given the number of quality performances over the five days. Rhiannon Giddens, Vintage Trouble, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Con Brio, St Paul and the Broken Bones, Jason Isbell, Irish Mythen, Jackson Browne, Shooglenifty, Elle King, The National, Blind Boys ...... A smorgasbord of excellent music catering to all tastes. Loved it, again. Thank you Mr Noble and the team. Tickets for 2017 already bought!

out of the 34 & a half performances I caught over the past five days these would be my top five that I still can't believe I got to experience all in one weekend as they were all so amazing:
1. joe bonamassa & the drought killers (Saturday show) - if you were there you will get the reference.
2. Jason isbell & the 400 unit
3. Melissa etheridge
4. tedeschi trucks band (Saturday show)
5. st. paul & the broken bones (Saturday show)

I could give mentions to so many others but those were the best five I caught.

I'll go very mojo in my picks

Dangelo
Steve Earle
Blind Boys (Easter Sunday)
UB40
St Paul

Special mention
Kendrick: for keeping the fest profitable, attracting a new audience that should keep it alive for years to come and for generally blowing the roof off the mojo.
He didn't have any decks with him the cat empire scratched for 10 mins so he was as live an act as they were without having to "cheat".

Jason Isbell (and his band)
Tedeschi Trucks Band(210" was simply not enough)
Noel Gallagher AND The Flying Birds
Steve Earle AND The Dukes
Cold War Kids
The Decembrists
Graham Nash and Shane Fontaine
St Paul & The Broken Bones

The Bands ruled (altho stripped down Taj was grand); longer sets and frequent times (loved the Wailers).

Thanx for a great time.
