Please vote for Tangleweed to play CBGBFestival

By Scott. Filed under: TweedBlog.

The Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival takes place later this year at the Congress Theatre in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, which is just a short walk from Scott and Kip’s homes.

The festival is having a contest to award the last slot on the bill, and we’ll need your support to get it.

All voting will be conducted via email, beginning on 10/2.  Each email address can vote once-daily over the two week voting period.  After 10/16, the top-5 vote getters will then qualify for the final spot to be chosen by the Festival bookers.

If we win, we’ll play on a bill with David Grisman, The Avett Brothers, Little Ed and the Imperials, and many other great bands.  And some of us might just walk to the gig!  

Please see this link for the full details:  http://cbgbfestival.com/contest/

Thanks for your support.

Tangleweed at Wakarusa 2007 Video

Here are the final two songs from our Wakarusa ’07 set, “Heroin” by Velvet Underground and “The Orange Blossom Special”, featuring a quick chunk of “Interstellar Overdrive” by Pink Floyd.

Most of the hair you see on Billy’s head in this vid has since been donated to Wigs For Kids, and that pole holding the tent up apologizes for somewhat blocking your view of Paul playing bass.

Big Thanks again to Bret Mosiman for booking us at Wakarusa – we had a fantastic time.
