Fresh off their Nearfest show the night before, VDGG will bring the classics and new tracks to town. They did an amazing set at Nearfest 2009. (read review) Sellersville will be a great venue to hear this band. This is an Echoes Presents show, but I’ll be at Nearfest seeing Renaissance. I’ll have seen VDGG the night before. Watch for my blog review next morning.
The English progressive rock band with a bent towards the ecclesiastical. Beautiful singer in Joanne Hogg and a great guitarist in David Bainbridge. Read review of their 2010 Nearfest set http://wp.me/pgATL-Rb) This is an Echoes Presents show and I’ll be hosting.

Always a great show whether playing inventive originals or covers of tunes like Pink Floyd’s “Echoes” or Beethoven’s “5th.” This is an Echoes Presents show.
One of the second generation icons of acoustic guitar. This is an Echoes Presents show.
It’s been a long time and I think TD may have gotten better. They played Moogfest last year and I have a commentary on that performance and a link to a live recording of it. http://wp.me/pgATL-1qP
