"Oh the music! So my search for some breakfast began, then off to the day’s first show. This brought me to the River Stage again for Sean Shiel. This solo singer/guitar player is a must see. The solo player wasn’t uncommon this weekend, having some of the best at this festival. Ed Anderson, Pete Jive, Jaik Willis, Chicago Farmer and we certainly can’t forget Keller. To stand in the same genre of some of those entertainers I thought perhaps there might be some pressure. If there was, Sean wasn’t showing it. It’s my opinion that a solo artist has the most challenging of jobs. You really have to have an extraordinary presence and talent to succeed. I believe all these artists have that. Sean was busy on stage. Keeping the energy high, the lyrics real, and all eyes and ears on him and that guitar, he definitely deserved to have his name in the ring with all these other greats. Sunday was their day."
