Sam Tidwell Tribute Day - Sunday, June 14th -- The Videos

If you attended Sam Tidwell Tribute Day on June 14th , you know you were treated to a lot of fine music performed by some good folks in honor of a true New England Bluegrass original, Sam Tidwell. You may also recall that there were several television cameras at the event from Charter Television in North Windham, CT. All of the music performed that day was recorded for future broadcast on Charter's Community Access Channel, CTV 14. To this point, none of the shows have made it on the air, but two of these shows are in the pipeline for broadcast later this month:

Sunday, October 25th - 7PM: a program featuring the Massachusetts band, Spare Parts

Saturday, October 31st - 8PM: a program featuring Rhode Island native (and Sam Tidwell prodigee) Jimmy Gaudreau along with his duet partner, Moondi Klein

Please note that you will only be able to view these programs if you live in one of the 16 towns in eastern CT serviced by Charter Television (and, of course, you are a Charter subscriber). If you live in Ashford, Brooklyn, Canterbury, Chaplin, Columbia, Coventry, Eastford, Hampton, Lebanon, Mansfield, Pomfret, Scotland, Thompson, Willington, Windham, or Woodstock, be sure to tune into these programs on Channel 14 this month. We'll let you know when the other installments are ready to be broadcast.

Don't forget, too, that if you subscribe to Charter and live in one of the 16 towns they service, you should be able to hear former "Bluegrass Cafe" producer, Myrna Riquier, every Friday AM as she hosts her own Bluegrass program called, "New England Bluegrass Showcase." For just about 50 minutes every Friday morning (starting about 10:10AM), Myrna plays music performed (mostly) by New England performers. The audio is broadcast only on CTV 14.
