Just for fun
A new section for Face the Music – there are numerous places to turn for information in the scene – both on Galleywinter, and elsewhere, so we thought we’d provide you with a few links each week that might put new and exciting resources at your fingertips… Some say it’s the biggest event in Texas/Red Dirt music each year, and I for one tend to agree – it’s Musicfest 2006 in Steamboat Springs, CO. For those of you that have never experienced it, check out the video link on page 35 of the thread – it’ll give you an idea of the experience that is sometimes difficult to put into words…
Also check out Mavrik Magazine! This is a new publication that includes stories and interviews and in-depth event reviews that you can’t find anywhere else.
