Before they were f'ing sell-outs ( :D ), Ben & Jerry's had a great party every year at Sugarbush called the One World, One Heart festival. SO GREAT. It was free, had lots of free ice cream, GREAT acts & was close to my house ( :D ). I want to say I was around 13 the first year I went. Over the years I saw Michelle Shocked, Suzanne Vega, Little Feat, Blues Traveller, The Band, Buddy Guy, Shawn Colvin..... (there were many more, but these were the acts that made an impression on teenage me)

Eventually they started getting more commercial and changed venues....and then all the fun was gone. :evil:

I am very impressed...as they are the artists I was never able to see...except Duane Allman 1970 w/ABB in St. Paul... I can relate to the "sitting in seats"... At DPF, we sat in bleachers....during JHE set most of the other bands "SAT" on the ground in front of the stage and got into Jimi...
