The music just started with singer/songwriter Victoria Williams at the Mustang Stage at the 2010 Stagecoach Country Music Festival.
Mustang Stage host Waddie Mitchell welcomes the two hundred or so people scattered among what was the rocking Mojave Tent last weekend.
"Welcome to the Mustang Stage 2010 Stagecoach Festival. Did you come to have a good time?" Mitchell asked the crowd.
With a loud approval, he pointed out that the talent in the tent this weekend was immense, and the Mustang stage has some other pluses, too.
"It's always under the shade and you're not far from the beer garden," he said.
