Performers this year includ Sejd Behrend, Rag Darma, Mudgat, AKA and the Heart Hurt Goods, DJ Oki Brown, the Pine Hearts, the Brown Edition, Erev Rav, High Ceiling, Scott Askew, Blair Lundstedt, Chicadee, Mukana Marimba, the Hinges, Mike Mercer & Friends, Scuff and Al Show, the Lost Keys, and Los Hermanos Rumberos.

It’s happening from 1 to 9 PM at Bethel St. NE and Sanfrancisco Ave. NE.  The schedule and additional information is available at loveourlocalfest.org.

Do you recognize this mysterious programmer?  You might know him as one of the hosts of our longtime bluegrass show, American Anecdotes!  When this photo was taken, he had just joined the family of AA hosts, which at the time (circa 2008) was broadcasting every Thursday night from the third floor of the College Activities Building.  Thank you, mystery host, for sticking with us throughout two moves, and continuing to bring independent bluegrass artists to the airwaves!
