February 1 Gather 'Round: 2004 Mando Mafia Concert



on Gather 'Round

Saturday, February 1, 2014

8-9 pm (est)

Gather 'Round each Saturday night from 8-9 for a new WTJU Folk concert series; both archived and live. There will be shows from The Prism Coffeehouse and VA Folklife archives mixed in with some from our announcers' own libraries. And you never know when a live concert might pop up!  This week's program comes from a 2004 Mando Mafia concert recorded at the Appalachian String Band Festival (aka Clifftop).

The members of Mando Mafia will be coming together on Thursday, February 6, from 4-7 pm (est) as part of this year's WTJU Folk Fund Drive (Feb 3-9).  They will be doing a special tribute show to Kelly Perdue, who tragically died in 2005.  Not only will they share some memories and rare archived recordings, but they will also perform live.  And joining them will be some of their offspring and family members, including Kelly's son, Ben.
