Tune in to my special MBOTMA stringband show on Dig Up the Roots

Tune in to KFAI tomorrow, Tuesday Aug. 7, from 9 - 11 a.m. as I play fiddle and banjo tunes by folks performing at MBOTMA past and present! Get geared up for the 28th Annual MBOTMA fest held at el Rancho Manana as you'll hear stringbands performing this year such as Poor Benny (just released a great new CD), Eric and Suzy Thompson, The High 48s, Dan Gellert, Moss Piglets, and those from the past such as Mill City Grinders, Pert Near Sandstone, Uncle Earl, Rayna Gellert, Reeltime Travelers, the Wilders, and many more. I'll also feature music the likes of what you'll hear around campfires such as by Clancy Ward (former original Dickel Brother from Portland) and Sarah York, sounding just like the old '78s they're into, fiddler Tim Foss, and members of the above bands joining in the all-day/all-night jam sessions. MBOTMA is really a good time, with five stages, workshops, lots of dancing, playing and listening to old fiddle tunes. Just watch out for "Hard Times on Beaver Dam Road" and be careful if you "go up on Sugar Hill." And, give Clayton a nickel, see if he'll dance.

I'll present a calendar with some dates and times of performances, workshops and dances. During my weekly Dakota Dave Hull calendar at 10 a.m Thursdays, I'll present my fuller calendar "What's Happenin'" so stay tuned for that as well, as there are more good times in this town any given night than one can keep track of . . .

So check it out as I substitute host for Greg Carr bringin' you great old-timey tunes and helpin' you out in "gettin' ready to go!" And, if you miss it, remember you can pick it up in the KFAI Archives, Under Dig Up the Roots!
