This is episode is brought to you in part by the Midwest Sing & Stomp: an all-day festival of folk music and dance; a nonstop party celebrating the many traditions that have taken root in Chicago and throughout the region: from cajun to mariachi, and blues to bomba. It’s a festival run by local artists, for local artists--and the communities they represent. The 2019 festival offers a full day of music, dance, and workshops on two stages. Festival-goers can join in a barn dance, freedom sing or banjo workshop, and take in traditions from Mexico, Puerto Rico and across the U.S. The day culminates in a concert by Las BomPleneras (an all-female bomba y plena band), Mariachi Sirenas (Chicago’s only all-female mariachi band) and old-time and country blues master Hubby Jenkins (formerly of Carolina Chocolate Drops). I’ve been to this festival, and I had a blast. You should go if you can. It’s all day September 14th. Tickets are only $20 at the door or $15 if you buy yours in advance at, which I have linked in the show notes.
