I'm hosting Mill City Grinders on KFAI Dig Up the Roots Tuesday 9 - 11 a.m.!
Hi -- Hope you can tune in as I fill in tomorrow, Tuesday from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. on KFAI Dig up the Roots, 90.3 FM Mpls, 106.7 St. Paul. I'm featuring a great new old-time stringband Mill City Grinders who've just come out with their new CD No Corn in the Crib. Adam Brainard on banjo, Matt Neill on fiddle and Adam Kiesling on guitar will play us some fine tunes and with guitar, some pretty strange old ballads. They'll share stories, and favorite songs and good bad jokes. I'll also play some tunes by folks who played at Minnesota Old-time and Bluegrass Music Association a few weeks ago and past years, and possibly a few tunes from those who used to grace the Viking stage in days gone but not forgotten, such as the Front Porch Swingin' Liquor Pigs, Spider John Koerner and Lonesome Dan Kase and the Brass Kings. It'll be one big hootenanny. Join the fun. If you miss it, or are out of town, you can hear the show for up to two weeks here: KFAI Program Archives
