Ryan says he is Drowning in Mass Chaos

I have been thrown into the middle of mass chaos. Backstage, props are shifting, boxes are rolling around and equipment is being moved to and fro. I am interviewing Danielle Evin. In a prevous blog I mentioned the well-rounded talent she has. Hopefully, I can keep up with her during the interview.

I went live with my broadcast from backstage with Steve Earle. Allison Moorer was hovering just out of shot. They are doing their set as I write. They have a large fan base backstage. People are crowding around me jockeying to get a glimpse of the duo strumming and singing in romantic harmony.

The venue looks really packed. I had a few of you write to me about where you were going to be seated. I'll be coming out to you later in the evening. I have a full day of interviews, but by 10pm, I will make sure to see you all.

There is another set on the food patio where all the artists are eating. During one set, a band of Neil’s friend sang a beautiful Happy Birthday to Neil’s son. Everyone stopped eating to give a round of applause.

You may have noticed during the Webcast that my t-shirts keep changing. Well, we had the idea of showing our wide variety of Farm Aid gear. I promise I will not surprise you with a girly-tee.

    Will the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band set be broadcast at all? One of the major highlights of the concert, in my opinion...
