The Tunes

Eight musical acts performed at Better Festival over the weekend, with many of the musicians staying on for an after-hours open jam in Better Farm's Art Barn to cap off the festivities.
We are still working on compiling video footage of the music from the weekend (please get in touch if you've got some you'd like to share), but wanted to give you a little preview. To kick things off, here's a short video montage one of the performers, Robert J. Finch, made:

Here's another one by Finch called "Welcome to Providence":

Capturing the crowd's heart in the late afternoon were AmberLee Clement, Erin Fulton, and Evan Wormwood. Here they are performing the Supremes classic "Where Did Our Love Go?":

...and "Say That You Love Me":

The Great Fraud came out and Tanisha Pusey brought the house down with her rendition of "Knocking on Heaven's Door":

The tunes carried on long into the evening (and following morning, and next afternoon, and the night after that). Here's a sneak peek at that insanity:
