Pat, who is going on 107 years old, says she was surprised that her difficulty breathing was caused by a heart problem, not her lungs.
On this episode of “The Live Feed” we present Steve Kaul and The Brass Kings from Minneapolis MN at Boats & Bluegrass 2012. This group plays their old time instruments in very unexpected ways. With metal bodied resophonic guitars, washtub bass, and washboard – they chart the Bermuda Triangle of old time, middle eastern and bluegrass music. Shifting into jug band chugging into wild improvisational ragas, the band blends folk music traditions into a pulsing groove.
An interview and performance with Winona based bluegrass band Beet Root Stew. Beet Root Stew is an eclectic group of musicians which can vary from 5 to 15 members formed 5 years ago and have since become a staple at local bars and the annual Boats and Bluegrass festival in Winona MN. They draw their inspiration from the scenic Winona landscape and hope that their good time attitude rubs off of those who see them perform.
