The first Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival was a sellout Saturday as a crowd estimated at 3,000 enjoyed seven musical performances under perfect skies.

The festival started at 11 a.m. and the crowd grew at Roanoke Island Festival Park in the hours leading up to headliners Rhonda Vincent and the Rage.

Dusk settled over the park with the Roanoke Sound as a backdrop to the amphitheater stage as Vincent wrapped up what by all indications was a successful second day of the three-day festival.

The festival continues Sunday.

The Sleepy Man Banjo Boys feature brothers Jonny Mizzone, 9, on banjo, Robbie, 13, on fiddle and Tommy, 14, on guitar.

The Roanoke Sound provides a backdrop for Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver.
