Music fans share their top 5 sets from All Good fest

Jul. 15, 2010 @ 04:12 PM

MASONTOWN, W.Va. -- We went, we danced, spray-painted a school bus, hula-hooped, partied with giant puppets, set hundreds of lanterns to light up a night black sky, and soaked up the sounds of 40 of the best live music bands on the planet up at Marvin's Mountaintop in Masontown, W.Va., last weekend for the 14th annual All Good Music Festival.

  With magical sets of music from such acts as Furthur (featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead), Widespread Panic, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Keller Williams, and dozens more still swirling in our heads, we asked about six of our area's music fans who were up at All Good to name their five favorite sets of music from the weekend.

Mark Pilcher of Huntington

1. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, "She blew me away with her voice, legs and high heels -- smokin! The most unexpected set of the weekend for me."

2. Derek Trucks/Susan Tedeschi -- Smokin set that included Jimmy Herring (Widespread Panic).

3. Widespread Panic -- Very soulful set that included Derek Trucks.

4. Yonder Mountain String Band -- What can be better than late night bluegrass. Jeff Austin was on fire.

5. Keller Williams -- He played the Moonshine Breakfast and the closing set with the Added Bonus. His love for All Good showed in his music.
