    Default fistful of mercy

    never given them a listen and haven't hear anyone talking about this band. i know it has george harrison's son in it. what are some thoughts, will this be a band worth checking out? or is it just another meh attempt at family name to fame a la damien marley?

    They do have that Ben Harper guy playing with them as well. Barring conflicts, they'll be a solid afternoon band.

    Hmmmm, I'd say monsters of folk? Harper tears it up on his steel pedal as usual.

    Not grabbing me as much as I had hoped, especially since he's George's son.

    anybody else catch their set? I was surprised at how empty it was. it was very easy to get to the front, but I enjoyed what I saw.

    Wow I'm surprised there are so few comments about their set. One of my favorite moments of the festival right here. They absolutely killed it. Amazing set.

    I laid down and listened to their set. It was a great break.
