Happy campers abound at Hangtown Music Festival

hangtown-6

You can feel the excitement in the crisp autum air. Happy campers abound and their glee is easy for all to see. Sunny skies greeted fans gathered at the sixth-annual Hangtown Music Festival in Placerville, California, which just last week was dosed with several inches of much needed rain. Old friendships rekindled, and new ones were made. Opening night acts let loose in the Hangin’ Hall on  Thursday, including hosts Railroad Earth and a funky performance by the Pimps of Joytime. On Friday, music floated from all corners of the El Dorado County Fairgrounds. The Dead Winter Carpenters chopped it up with some string-tacular tunes well known to their neighbors on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The Pink Talking Fish channeled Pink Floyd, The Talking Heads and Phish in a style all their own. Fishbone frontman Angelo Moore joined Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe to perform Prince’s “Dirty Minds.” Tahoe Onstage photographer Larry Sabo filed this photo essay of days one and two at Hangtown. Reporter Garrett Bethmann is on the scene, as well, exploring the ins and outs of festival life. Stay tuned for his reports.
