Falcon Ridge artists teaser

The Falcon Ridge people sent out an email that includes a brief list of some of the artists who will be playing this year. It's a very partial list, there will be lots more artists, but I'm particularly excited to see the Arrogant Worms on it!! I think they're the funniest group in music today, at least that I know of - they make me laugh more than DaVinci's Notebook, the Austin Lounge Lizards, Dry Branch Fire Squad, or any other group I can think of. And they're a crusty old band holed up in their native Novia Scotia, unwilling to make a lot of trips down to the US unless they can be well paid for the effort, so I hardly ever get to see them. I made a trek down to Allentown PA to see a show they did with EFO a few years ago, so them alone are reason enough to go to Falcon Ridge in my opinion (not that I ever considered not going this year :)

Other bands on the short preliminary list for FRFF 2005 include regular favorites Dar Williams, Eddie From Ohio, Tracy Grammer, The Kennedys, and The Nields, a few interesting groups that have played recent years and did well on the survey such as Railroad Earth and Brave Combo, and a few other exiting newcomers - such as Fruit!.

Here's the relevant snippet from the email:
