[On A Personal Note: I want to give a huge Thumbs Up to Doyle's soundman who kept the volume at a reasonable 'acoustic-friendly' level for the band's last set. It was a special treat to hear the natural acoustic sounds leaking out from the stage in addition to the subtle amplified speaker sound levels. We are all too familiar with unnecessarily loud systems for bluegrass artists. That last hour with Doyle Lawson was an exceptionally fine balance between the acoustic sound, and the amplified sound system. Unfortunately most sound companies do not possess the finesse of Doyle Lawson's sound dude.]
