Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds
Waterfront Blues Festival
July 2, 2015
I'm not going to be able to record as much this year. I'll try to get all the major acts and some favorites I've had over the years. Again, KBOO FM is broadcasting the show live. KBOO is an all volunteer station. All proceeds from the festival go to the Oregon Food Bank so please donate if you can. They also have a live stream on the internet. It's an MP3 stream. My set up is an old Technics Quartz Tuner> H2 Zoom> SD card> computer> TLH.

�Sister Sparrow, Arleigh Kincheloe�s nom de disque, is a soul queen with a voice strong and raspy enough to compete with riffing horns and clipped funk beats.� - WASHINGTON POST
