Thursday is "National Live Music Day"

Who knew?  So ... what better day to get out to see live music's your civic responsibility!

Check out my calendar page and pick something!  I'll get back to recommendations tomorrow.

But one that should be on your radar for the weekend is the River City Music Festival that starts tomorrow at the Red Lion at Janzen Beach.  This festival has evolved from a bluegrass to a more encompassing Americana music format.  Some notable artists that are performing this year include Rodney Crowell, Peter Rowan, Sierra Hull, Jim Lauderdale, Ray Wylie Hubbard, David Lindley, Tony Furtado, and the Hot Club of Cowtown.  Tickets can be purchased for the entire 3-day festival or by individual days. It's also family friendly with special prices for kids under 12. And, there are workshops and jams for folks of all skill levels going on throughout the weekend.  I'll be there doing a volunteer shift on Saturday and taking in a pretty full day of music. Hope to see ya there!
