Floyd Fest Wrap Up (Part I) on Walk Right In

Tuesday, August 2, 2011 ● Noon-2 pm (edt)
WTJU 91.1 FM/Streaming at WTJU.net  

Leftover Biscuits and Tell Us A Tale host Peter Jones will Walk Right In for regular host Rebecca this Tuesday, as he takes a look back at Floyd Fest X.  He will focus during this program strictly on the wonderful music workshops and performances at the Virginia Folklife Program at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities' Workshop Porch.  While many of the artists, including David Grisman, Peter Rowan, Dirk Powell, Sam Bush, Jorma Kaukonen and Del McCoury, also performed on the the larger Floyd Fest stages, it is their Workshop Porch appearances that really resonated.  And of course The Porch, as it is commonly called among the Floyd Fest regulars, also highlighted some up and coming treasures such as The Morwenna Lasko and Jay Pun Quartet, The Barefoot Movement and The Boston Boys

Peter will do a second Floyd Fest wrap up later this week, where he will focus on the other stages.  Stay tuned for details!
