If you are a first-time visitor, let me tell you a little more about String Fever: Its all about the music - and the players.
I welcome live soloists, bands, and co-hosts in the String Fever studio especially if you have an upcoming gig in our listening area! You can reach me anytime via email (email@example.com), or by calling the station toll-free at 877-388-6277. If you have a gig in the region please email me the details for inclusion on String Fever and include a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org too!
Theres nothing like live music, but I strive to make String Fever your weekly nearly-as-good-as-a-live-gig Bluegrass Café and I hope that youll hear something on the air that inspires you to seek out the live, in-person version of it; whether its a bluegrass festival, concert or workshop.
until we meet in person at a gig, festival,
concert or fundraiser
. Happy listening! See you on the

New Videos from Nu-Blu
Nu-Blu is celebrating ten years as a band, and celebrating with music videos of some of the tracks from their most recent album, Ten.
The band writes almost all of their own material. They performed last summer at the Madrid River Bluegrass Festival, and wowed audiences with their enthusiasm, stage presence, vocal arrangements, and very impressive tour bus!
