Leon-Redbone-2007
Leon Redbone was the festival's first headliner in 1993. Heavy rain forced his performance inside at St. Mark's. He has returned to perform at the festival every few years, most recently in 2007. He closed the show that year. It was hot, and he relaxed between tunes sipping a cool beverage. (Photo: David Dupont/Sentinel-Tribune)
