Festival Update

I was a bit surprised that this season’s festival listing post didn’t get a bunch of comments telling of festivals that I neglected to list. Either I am getting better at finding and listing festivals or you riders are getting a bit slack.

Thanks to Bruce for letting us know of a fairly new festival. The line up for this festival looks great! Long time riders on the Bus will remember Mark Rubin of the Bing Bang Boys sharing some of the great old time music that Austin is enjoying (original post here.)
Mark your calendar.

Austin String Band Festival
Austin, Texas
October 19-20
Austin Friends of Traditional Music -

I have reposted the two songs from the August 2006 post.
Just try to keep your feet still!

Bing Bang Boys - Over In The Gloryland.mp3

Bing Bang Boys - Crazy 'Bout My Chevrolet.mp3

Visit their website for more info about the appropriately titled CD "I'm Feelin' Good". Or listen to clips and buy a copy at CD Baby or iTunes.

Get out and see some live music real soon.
You’ll have a great time and your attendance will let club owners and promoters know that there is an audience for good music.

You are getting better at finding and posting event schedules. I don't know about the riders getting slack. A third possibility, maybe, were there less events this year?

The other GREAT Bay Area festival in the near future is Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, free in Golden Gate Park the first weekend of October through the generosity of Warren Hellman. Five stages and a truly jaw-dropping lineup with a lot of huge names, mostly traditional bluegrass to alt-country.
