WMOT Birthday Bash at Americana Festival

By Ken Paulson

It’s been a highlight-filled week at the 2017 Americana Music Festival, but we we’ll admit to a special fondness for a show produced by WMOT Roots Radio, where I also play a modest role.

The station celebrated its first birthday as an Americana station with performances by Paul Thorn, Reckless Kelly, Whitney Rose, the Secret Sisters,the Deep Dark Woods, the O’Connor Band, Lilly Hiatt, the Texas Gentlemen, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Katie Pruitt, the Vandoliers and Mike Farris.
