Article written by on Tuesday, Apr 24, 2007 in On The Web

From mvyradio.com ….

Merlefest 2007 begins this Thursday, April 26th, on the campus of Wilkes Community College in North Carolina. It’s one of the largest Americana music festivals in the country. This year, Main Stage performers include Doc Watson, Alison Krauss, Pam Tillis, The Waybacks, Sam Bush, Earl Scruggs, The Duhks and more.

The Wilkes Community College campus radio station, WSIF, has carried a feed from the Watson Stage, on its broadcast for many years. This year, for the first time ever, WSIF will be streaming their radio signal, so fans around the world can listen in. At showtime, go to www.radiofreemerlefest.org to hear the free live feed.

Again this year, www.mvyradio.com will be at Merlefest, recording, archiving and rebroadcasting performances from the stages of Merlefest. You can hear selected sets during regular broadcasting hours on the station’s stream. Performances from participating artists will be posted on mvy’s Merlefest page, http://mvyradio.com/musicinfo/merlefest2007.php. There will also be tons of pictures, interviews and a Merlefest journal on that page.

Hear a Merlefest preview show from April 11th, hosted by WSIF’s Al DeLaChica, at http://www.mvyradio.com/archives/index.php?browse=hot_seat.
