FOLK BLUES NIGHT is a monthly traditional music happening at our shop in Hamtramck, Mich. This ain't yer av'rage coffee-shop-singer-songwriter-style open mic, although we're friendly to folks showin' up and wantin' t' sit in fer a tune er two. We've also been recording some of these nights and puttin' up some collections of songs fer yer list'nin pleasure here at bandcamp or on our website. A handful of these releases are also available on cassette tape, runs of a hundred, hand dubbed, xeroxed, printed packed and folded by shop magician, Richie himself. As well, we've recently been awarded a grant by the Knight Foundation outta Miami, FL. They're matching a proposed $15,000 a year for two years—which means that if we raise that amount during our grant period, they'll match it. We're raising it through donations and download/cassette sales. So name your denomination for a digital download at our bandcamp, or purchase some cassette tapes from us, or donate directly and help us match these funds!
