Considering the fact that the String Cheese Incident was formed in Colorado, the band has always had its hands surprisingly deep in the southern sounds of bluegrass. Fans who found the band’s Friday night set lacking in such got their payoff on Sunday evening when the band took to the stage with Kentucky newgrass legend Sam Bush, and a cast of all-star guest musicians, to pay tribute to the Kentucky sound.

Perhaps the most exciting show of the whole festival musically, the band stretched its wings, playing everything from originals to reworked bluegrass classics. But the real star of the show here was Bush, who proves time and again that he is one of the greatest and most innovative mandolin players alive. Hailing from just down the road in Bowling Green, Bush showed fans that nobody does bluegrass better than Kentucky.
