Bernie Underwood who was compere for the festival kicked of proceedings with a set followed by the Kate Bain Band.

Arne Benoni who originates from Norway kicked of with many tracks familiar to Jim Reeves fans, in fact Arne has the last original member of the Jim Reeves band in his group. The Orkney based band Shogun delivered in true style another impressive set to close the evening.

Saturday saw the venue packed to capacity.  Baillie and the Boys gave some terrific harmonies during their set which was appreciated by the audience.  David Ball was followed by the "Irish Queen of Country" Philomena Begley. As soon as she entered the stage the audience was up on their feet.  It just shows that after 40 years in the music business, she still has that magic touch.

The Northern Nashville Committee and their helpers can be well assured that they have done the impossible, surpassed last years festival.  More photos wil appear on the Northern Nashville Web Site shortly
