Last year, HPPR welcomed seven artists to the makeshift sound stage, lovingly configured by David Condos of the Kansas News Service. Together, we collected interviews and live sets from seven artists, including Ernest James Zydeco, Ruth Ellen Lynch, Blue Canyon Boys, The Church Ladies, John Depew, Russ & Debbie Tidwell, Haven Alexandra, and Taarka. So if you weren't there, you'll be able to enjoy some of the regional talent that made last year's fest a real treat.
