Both Lil' Rev and I will be performing/teaching this weekend at the Wheatland Traditional Arts Festival. The Wheatland festival site is located in Remus, Michigan - smack dab in the middle of Michigan's lower peninsula.

We will be both be onsite Sunday May 24th. The festival runs all weekend.

Rev is teaching a Blues mandolin and harmonica workshop (he's a versatile guy) and I am teaching a beginning Swing Uke workshop. Both Rev's band 'Frogwater' and my band 'The Lost World String Band' (me on guitar, steel and uke) will perform in concert at the festival on Sunday evening.

The fall Wheatland Festival is one of the nations largest outdoor 'roots' music festivals attracting more than 15,000 attendees. This weekend's traditional arts event will be a bit smaller.
