Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook!



Hard to believe it, but Americana Week is here. The return to a live event will different - proof of vaccine or negative test will be required, I expect - but don't know - that there will smaller crowds in general. But, there is still going to be a lot happening - and one event, I am particularly excited about is the Magnolia Roads - American Roots Saturday & Backyard Campfire Sessions.  I will be teaming up with the incredible Emily Hansen of Magnolia Roads to co-emcee the event which boasts 20+ musical acts on two stages - including several E2TG favorites - like Jon Latham, Allen and Keshia of LadyCouch, The Natchez Tracers, Renee Wahl & The Sworn Secrets, Chip Greene, Mike Younger, David Newbould, The Minks, Don Gallardo, Tim Easton, Amelia White, Ted Russell Kamp, and more. 

The show goes from 11:30am until 8pm at Dee's Country Cocktail Lounge.  The schedule and details can be found  here - stop by or hangout all day.
