Vendors up and down the streets, cafes and coffee houses filled all day and all night and not a room to be had…..except maybe a spare bed in the house of a friend. Martna’n på Røros. A week of celebration every year for hundreds of years. Here is an program of great dance music to warm things up a bit.
Thanks to Karl Smelker of KFAI’s Louisiana Rhythms for co-hosting with me today. We did an entire show of Louisiana-based music as we prepare for Fat Tuesday and our Mardi Gras Party at the Eagles Club. We hope to see you there. The music starts at 7:00….the Eagles is located at 25th Ave. and 25th St. in Minneapolis.
