But first something even more important... I just brought home my wife and newest daughter from the hospital this afternoon. Yep, another Gilliland enters the world.... Jaimee Lynn Gilliland arrived Wednesday evening shortly after 9. Now for the subject line - WKSU is broadcasting my recordings of last year's Kent State Folk Festival tonight and tomorrow night here. These will include Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, the Pete Sutherland trio, Ruthie Foster, Laurie Lewis and Nina Gerber, the Asylum Street Spankers, Cheryl Wheeler, and Eric Bogle. Also in the mix will be Beyond The Pale (I did NOT record that one), and an archive performance of Martin, Bogan, and Armstrong from the 1970s (again, not my work). Howard Armstrong died just this month - he was the last of them to stick around. (For those unfamiliar, Martin, Bogan, and Armstrong were an early black string band from the rural south, one of the best known and best loved. This is definitely a slice of musical history. This one will kick off tomorrow night's broadcast/webcast at 8.) The broadcasts will be carried on the web via RealAudio or Windows Media at wksu.org. They run from 9PM to 1AM EDT tonight, and 8PM to 1AM EDT on Saturday night: http://wksu.org/live/ They may also be available on wksu.org for a week or more after the broadcast: http://wksu.org/folk/ Or, if you happen to be in northeastern Ohio, they're on the air at 89.7 or any of several repeaters: http://wksu.org/inwksu/area_coverage.html If you get the chance to listen to any of them, please feel free to critique or ask questions about the recordings.
