On Stage One, Brian Vogan and Danika Morrow kick things off with “kindie rock” at 9 a.m., followed by singer-songwriter Nancy Stewart at 10:30 and crowd favorite Eric Ode at noon. Ode is making his fourth festival appearance.

Stage Three, at Porter Avenue and Griffin Street, opens with the blues/soul sound of Boots and the Broken Laces at 10 a.m. and includes a tribute to 1990s rock with Blackbox from noon to 1 p.m. Following are Celtic Treble at 2 p.m.; The Forgotten 45’s, indie rock, 4 p.m.; and Americana sounds from the Rece Jay Band at 6 p.m. The day closes with a rock/country band, The 410’s, playing from 8 to 9 p.m.
