BOONVILLE — Five folk bands took the Thespian Hall stage Friday evening to kick off the Big Muddy Folk Festival.

The festival continues Saturday.

Phyllis Dale leans back in her seat and smiles at the crowd while playing the piano at the 20th annual Big Muddy Folk Festival on Friday night in Boonville. At the end of her set, Dale recounted a sentimental memory of a previous time in Boonville when a fan asked her for her autograph.
The Rain Dogs, from Kansas City, perform their string band and classic blues music at the 20th annual Big Muddy Folk Festival in Booneville. The Rain Dogs closed out the first evening of music, following four other acts.
More than 200 people packed Thespian Hall in Boonville to watching the Rain Dogs perform during the 20th annual 2011 Big Muddy Folk Festival on Friday night. Thespian Hall is a pre-Civil War opera house where the festival brings in acts to pay tribute to the past and celebrate the coming times.
