HAVERFORD — Mother Nature must enjoy the music.

The ninth Haverford Music Festival went off under gorgeous blue late summer skies along Darby and Eagle roads Saturday as thousands of people came out to enjoy more than 30 bands and performers that took the stage.

“It’s been great,” said Ron Vitale of Havertown. “Such a difference from the Spring Fest when it poured rain.”

Music echoed around town from a variety of genres from noon into the evening on four stages with highlights that included nationally touring talent including Teddy Thompson, son of rock legends Richard and Linda Thompson. The evening shows were capped by multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams.

Among the sites to see from vendors included the ‘Back to the Future’ DeLorean car, and Springfield resident Gary Byrne, a retired Secret Service agent who was signing books.

The event is presented by Acme Supermarkets and is supported by WXPN radio.

“The weather is great,” said Jen Singer of Haverford, who was enjoying the afternoon. “It’s great for kids.”
