The festival came to a close on Sunday with some really special performances. The Relatives started off the day with some soulful gospel. Preservation Hall Jazz Band followed up with a lively set that had everyone in the park dancing. Low Volts played some dirty blues on the side stage before Anders Osborne rocked out. Karl Denson's Tiny Universe was amazing and John Hiatt & The Combo was mesmerizing. Finally, Melissa Etheridge blew everyone away with a 2hr plus set. What a perfect way to end the festival.
