After a rainy Saturday the Big Muddy Blues Festival moved outside for Sunday, the festival's final day.

The feature performances, on the main stage, featured something old and something new. A tribute to Etta James by Renee Smith, Marsha Evans and Kim Massie provided the crowd with many of Etta's classic hits. The new performance came in the form of Ana Popovic, a young guitar player who did not disappoint the crowd. Then Dr. John put on an act that brought back memories of his "Night Tripper" days. As the Doctor's performance came to an end, a full moon winked at the crowd above the stage. Just what the Doctor ordered.
