The month of May holds some excitement for the Blind Pig & the Acorn and it’s readers. First up-the 2nd Annual Blind Pig & the Acorn Planting by the Signs Test gets started on the 17th.
Second-I’ll be hosting a Spotlight on music and it’s relationship to Appalachia. The music features will be sprinkled in with the usual posts over the coming weeks. A few highlights of the Spotlight:
- Interviews-David Grier, Kathy Chiavola, and Bob Dalsemer to name a few
- CD giveaways
- Guest posts by notable writers from the music world as well as a few who write about Appalachia
- Go along with me as I visit local jam sessions
- Giveaway Sponsored by The Old-Time Herald-a year’s subscription to their wonderful magazine
- Vintage Classical Ibanez Guitar Giveaway-sponsored by Paul Wilson
- Spotlight Sponsored by World Wide Bluegrass
Hope you stick around for the sign test-and for the Spotlight on Music in Appalachia-both should be a lot of fun-and who knows you might just win a guitar.
