Once again it’s a Homegrown Music Festival extravaganza on KUMD all week long. We’ll have Live from Studio A sessions with Homegrown bands every week day, plus a two-hour edition of the Local Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. featuring performances from Toby Thomas Churchill, Tim Kaiser, and more.
I love this new(ish) show on KUMD. Check out recordings from past shows here [Jill Hinners, Deborah Cooper, Cheryl Reitan, Sheila Packa, Gail Trowbridge, Meredith Cornett (total self-promotion, please forgive me), and many others!]. “Women’s Words” airs at ~1:30 and 3:30 p.m. on Sundays as part of the Women’s Music Show. If you are a (woman) writer willing to do a short reading from your work, they want to hear from you!
In case you missed the June 29th edition of the Local on KUMD hosted by me and Paul Lundgren and based on this PDD post, it’s now archived on our website here. It features an interview with John Berquist of the Moose Wallow Ramblers (pictured at left), who wrote “I Like it in Duluth,” and a medley of versions of that song.
You can also listen to my recent show featuring interviews and music from the Winnipeg Folk Festival, including interviews with Charlie Parr and Eric Berry of Trampled by Turtles, who were both playing the festival for the first time, here.

Happy Homegrown, y’all!
For some reason this Minneapolis gypsy, folk super-group has yet to set foot in Duluth but the wait is finally over. A regular main-stay at Minneapolis venues such as the Cedar, the Dakota and First Avenue, tonight they open for Trampled By Turtles @ Pizza Luce. It will be hard to follow last night’s opening performance by Minneapolis roots-rockers A Night in the Box, though Michelle & co. will certainly cease your attention. Trampled By Turtles really loves their regional bands, supporting numerous, young, up and comers including A Night in the Box, Johnson Family Band, Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank and many more.
