One of the Most Heartwarming Moments of Folk - Seeing the power go out briefly on the Quad Stage didn't do a thing to deter the wonderful Sallie Ford. Without knowing how long the sound would be down, she urged her band to play louder and she leaned forward into an enthralled crowd for an acoustic cover of Dolly Parton's "Jolene" - it was incredible. Ford landed one of the first standing ovation of the festival and the hearts of new fans.
