Merlefest 2007 begins this Thursday, April 26th, on the campus of Wilkes
Community College in North Carolina. It's one of the largest Americana
music festivals in the country. This year, Main Stage performers
include Doc Watson, Alison Krauss, Pam Tillis, The Waybacks, Sam Bush,
Earl Scruggs, The Duhks and more.
The Wilkes Community College campus radio station, WSIF, has carried a
feed from the Watson Stage, on its broadcast for many years. This year,
for the first time ever, WSIF will be streaming their radio signal, so
fans around the world can listen in. At showtime, go to
http://www.radiofreemerlefest.org to hear the free live feed.

recording, archiving and rebroadcasting performances from the stages of
Merlefest. You can hear selected sets during regular broadcasting hours
on the station's stream. Performances from participating artists will
be posted on mvy's Merlefest page,
