CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The All Good Music Festival returns to the area this weekend, and, while it's no longer a West Virginia-based music festival, it's still pretty close. (From Charleston, the distance to Legend Valley is almost the same as it is to Masontown, where the festival was located for nine years).
The gazz spoke with All Good's media director and biggest cheerleader, Dave Weissman, about how the festival is settling in its new digs and what's worth checking out this weekend on the festival grounds.
Q:It's been a year since All Good relocated from Marvin's Mountaintop in Masontown to Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio. How's that working out?
A: "It's great. The venue is very well set up. I mean, The Grateful Dead, did 60,000 people there for a half-dozen shows in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It has a nice, sloping concert bowl and is centrally located. It's just outside of Columbus, a little west of Zanesville and about a quarter mile off Interstate 70."
Q:What changes has All Good undergone lately?
