Ben headlined the second night of the festival with a solo acoustic performance. He was joined by Freebo (acoustic bass) and Jeff Berkley of the Joel Raphael Band (djimbe, percussion) on "Glory & Consequence" and "Mama's Got A Girlfriend Now." "Beloved One" was dedicated to Roy Orbison, who was an inspiration for the song. Before "The Woman In You," Ben teased riffs of "Touch From Your Lust." Later, the entire ensemble of artists took the stage for Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" and Bruce Cockburn's "Waiting For A Miracle."
