We heard music from all over the country and the world during the 2017 Montana Folk Festival. Consider this the highlight reel from MTPR's live broadcasts from the festival. In the first hour, you'll hear Cajun and Acadian music from Bruce Daigrepont of Metarie, LA; the North Carolina-based gospel brass shout band, Cedric Mangum and Company; and the Ethiopian jazz of Washington, D.C.'s Feedel Band. In the second half of the program, we'll feature reggae from Seattle-based Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band; Chicago blues from Toronzo Cannon; and the Texas-style triple-fiddles and harmonies of The Quebe Sisters.
