8/12/2007 Womenfolk


Inspired by my weekend drive to and from Richmond for the Minnesota Bluegrass Old-Time Music Festival, I played some traveling music, including some new releases. And in honor of this year's Pickin' on the Banjo festival theme, I also highlighted songs featuring banjos. Big thanks to everyone who listened, called in and made requests! -efs.
