It’s been a weird month, musically. There’ve been some surprise releases that were fire, some scheduled releases that were… fine. We’ve had some legal news that’s… well… troubling. We’ve had festival announcements that were great. Some… not so great. It’s just been a strange month.

But April is right around the corner and while many festie friends have already started their season (Buku) and others are getting going this weekend (Ultra), I’ll be staying up in Philadelphia this weekend hoping that the predicted cold temperatures this weekend break and we have a taste of spring. Getting me through the end of the cold months is some good ol’ American folk and bluegrass music. And luckily for us, my side of the country’s first taste of such good tuneage isn’t too far away.

Actually, in less than one month, we’ll be treated to the Charm City Folk and Bluegrass Festival down in… where else… Baltimore, at Druid Hill Park.

Just a short trip from DC and Philadelphia, this one-day festival is packing it all in with huge names like the Travelin’ McCourys, The Wood Brothers, and many, many more. And right now, tickets are only $45 until April 1. Oh, and if you’ve got little rugrats, children under 10 are free.

And according to their twitter, they have a huge announcement for tomorrow:

In the meantime, Check out the video below, an HD shot of The Wood Brothers’ full set at the WinterWonderGrass in Colorado last month, and count your lucky stars that if you’re reading this, you’re probably nowhere near as cold as they were at the time of recording.

OH – and we almost forgot… Charm City Bluegrass Festival is throwing an after party featuring none other than The Everyone Orchestra:
