music etc. info for Feb. 1

hi everyone hope you are well
here is a bit of music etc. info:

Today (Thursday): Jugbusters @ the Cellar in Blacksburg (please phone to confirm)
Friday: Irish night @ Oddfellas in Floyd
Friday: Snake Hollow String Band, many others @ the Floyd Country Store
Saturday: Retro folk duo Rebecca Hall & Ken Anderson @ Oddfella's in Floyd

Also there will be a contra dance at the Sun Music Hall soon featuring No Strings Attached. Carbon Culture is playing on Feb. 9 at Whiskers in Floyd, this is a CD release party.

Also here is a helpful hint for lovers of Carbon Culture. The Allen boys in Carbon Culture also perform as the Allen Trio, so watch for that name too when searching for places to go see great live music. American Dumpster will be at the Coffee Pot in Roanoke on February 9 as well, and they will return again in March.

That is all I can remember right now...also WUVT fans will be happy to learn that the station has gotten a boost in transmitting power and I believe that the streaming thing is working better now. Folks outside the transmitting area can query "WUVT 90.7" to learn more. By the way I give 5 stars to the "Snakes on the Radio" show which I heard on WUVT for the first time today.

In other news, there is going to be a presentation at Cooper House tonight featuring a multimedia presentation on Black farmers. Sorry I don't have a contact # or more info for you, but the flyer did not contain a whole lot of info. Bye, have a wonderful day, thanks for reading. -Suzy
