Berkeley Old Time Music Convention, Sept.18- 22

the notloB Music Blog is New England-focused, but once in a while a festival or event comes along that deserves mention. This is certainly one of them!
p.s. Please note this is Berkley, not Berklee.

From Suzy Thompson

Burning CDs to send to local radio folks to help get the word out about the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention - Sept. 18- 22 this year (plus a post-BOTMC Cajun dance on Tues. 9/24 with Gros Brouillard - Foghorn plus Eric & Suzy plus Dirk Powell). I am so excited about our 10th anniversary lineup - Bruce Molsky, Rafe Stefanini, Mike Compton, Joe Newberry, Alice Gerrard, Beverly Smith, Dirk Powell, Foghorn Stringband (Sammy Lind, Nadine Landry, Caleb Klauder, Reeb Willms), Franklin George, Kim Johnson, Eddie Bond, Meghan Merker, Molly Tenenbaum, Evo Bluestein,Meredith Axelrod, Craig Ventresco, Grace Forrest, Clelia Stefanini -- listening to their music is making me feel so happy and I can't wait for September!!
