A week after coming off the high of playing a sold-out show at the iconic Red Rocks where they had top billing, the boys of Greensky Bluegrass made their way through the Blue Ridge Mountains and landed on the Dreaming Creek Main Stage for the fifth and final day of FloydFest.
“You getting tired yet? Well, we’re your Sunday saviors!” Greensky’s Paul Hoffman proclaimed from the stage. The Sunday crowd responded with cheers as the band launched into, “I’d Probably Kill You.”
While it’s typical for a portion of the crowd to thin a bit come Sunday, festival organizers are always wise about saving a few gems to reward those who delay the eventual return to reality to stick around for a final day of festival fun. Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, Ray LaMontagne, and Alison Krauss & Union Station have been those bands in recent years. This year, it was Greensky Bluegrass, followed by Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers.
