As the Clearwater Jazz Holiday neared its finish Sunday afternoon, relaxed music lovers sprawled out on blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the final performances.

Some were jazz loyalists who said it was tradition to see the four-day event to its end.

Others were waiting on a favorite artist — most often, it seemed, alternative country singer Brandi Carlile or folksy rock musician Amos Lee.

"We love (Lee), we have all his CDs," said April Barrientos, 30 of Port Richey, adding that her 9-year-old daughter, Izzy, who was waving her arms and dancing nearby, was also excited. "We have never gotten to see him live."
