The Windy Ridge Round-Up launched the 2011 KRNN Concert Series. It was a great night of music, community and fun. Collette Costa and Scott Burton hosted an amazing reunion of the Juneau folk music scene pioneers and torch-bearers, including Andy Ferguson, Jack Fontenella, Betsy Sims, Andrew Heist, and Sergei Morosan. A huge thanks goes to Scott for preparing the recording for radio and our website.
