Beautiful weather, good food, great music, friends and more–Tallahatchie Riverfest, Photos Updated

Paul Thorn entertains thousands at 2015 Tallahatchie Riverfest.

 Saturday night at the Tallahatchie Riverfest

A large crowd enjoyed music by the Eisenhauer Band, Raelyn Nelson and Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors before the evening’s headliner, Paul Thorn, took the stage with his excellent band of musicians. We missed Sam Mosely, who is recovering well from surgery, on the stage this year, but were happy to see him attending the festival and enjoying the music of his friend

Union County's premier musician Sam Mosely had a special backstage seat while Paul Thorn and his band performed. Sam is making a good recovery from recent surgery and expects to soon be performing again himself . He and the musicians in the Paul Thorn Band go "way back."

 FRIDAY , SEPTEMBER 25TH:

With temperatures on the Tallahatchie River a little below 70 degrees the crowd at the first night of the Tallahatchie Riverfest 2015 stayed cool while the music was hot.
