Next week in Chicago at Reggies Rock Club the second annual
Moonrunners Festival will take place.
And folks this is one event I have wanted to go to for since it was started
last year by Jashie P from Last False Hope and Outlaw Radio Chicago.
It’s set to take place next week April 25th and 26th in Chicago Illinois.
This year the headlining act was announced to be Scott H Biram!
Along with a TON more great underground and roots music in two days.
In fact this will be one of the only events where Shooter Jennings will
be performing with his mother Jessi Colter.
Other acts to be performing are (In no specific order):
Roger Alan Wade
Fifth On The Floor
J.B. Beverley And The Wayward Drifters
Cletus Got Shot (See additional info)
The Calamity Cubes
Carrie Nation And The Speakeasy

Now then, I understand from Muddy Roots Reocrds that Jospeh Huber will premier his
new album “The Hanging Road” at the festival.
His CD release party will be a part of the festival.
This album will have ten songs on it and YES it will be released on vinyl as well.
Cletus Got Shot is a three piece string band from Fayetteville Arkansas
that is partly going and partly not going these days.
Iv’e heard of some shows going on from them in the past few months
but I understand they will be playing Moonrunners.
You can buy tickets for this festival HERE.
There is hotel accomodations on the Moonrunners homepage.
I’ll tell you what there will be so much fun and exciting
things going on during this festival I’m pretty upset I
cannot make it but I plan to go out of my way to make 2015.
