2014-08-29 BumberSpin (The World Music Festival in My Mind)

Bumberspin - the world music festival in my mindThis episode it’s the festival in my own mind, the collection of musicians I’d love to see collected in one place on a sunny weekend with outdoor stages, cool drinks delivered by people on stilts, and no lines, ever. This weekend brings Bumbershoot to Seattle. But my festival is better.

2012-08-31 Bumbershoot Preview + New Releases & more

Bumbershoot logoBumbershoot may not be your first stop for global music, filled as it tends to be with pop and rock acts. But it has enough this year to perk up the ears of the “world music” fan, including Ana Tijoux, Bombino, Debo Band, Omar Souleyman, and Cascadia ’10. Also of note are great New Orleans sounds from Soul Rebels and Rebirth Brass Band. Mix those in with some new releases, and son…you’ve got yourself a radio show!
