Merlefest or BUST!

We've moved into that 6 day countdown, which means we only have one week left to raise 30% of our funds. The catch is we only see the funds if we raise them all. THIS IS ALL OR NOTHING.

In this final push, I must emphasis the importance of word-of-mouth and social media, posting about us on your facebook, tweeting about us, and reminding folks to donate. If you need help with any of this, let us know!

- All of you headed to Merlefest, be sure to chat us up and spread the word. I will be headed there too and would love to connect, so drop me a line if you are going!

To honor this region of North Carolina and the spread of Old Time and Bluegrass music, we would like to share this beautiful performance of The Ragweed Boys, shot back in October 2009.

- Trampled by Turtles will be performing tomorrow night (Tuesday, April 24th) on Letterman at 8pm ET. Don't miss a chance to see them play live and also don't forget that we have autographed LPs of their new release Stars and Satellites as rewards!

- Thanks to our friends in Australia who posted about us on the Australian Bluegrass Blog. Check it out! -

Today, we'd like to feature the Bluegrass 43 band from France!

- I've been keeping busy and want to thank all of you who have joined us recently and have donated from all over the world. Your kind letters of support have helped us stay motivated along the way. I look forward to connecting with you in coming days/weeks.

We can do this!
