Norwich, Connecticut - Just in time for this year's 17th Annual Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival, the folks at Podunk have released a new theme song: A Podunk Family Reunion which is available to download as an MP3 at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/podunkbluegrassmusicfest2
The song was conceived and written at the 2011 festival during the first ever advanced songwriters workshop taught by Louisa Branscomb. It reflects the way Podunk works its magic every year when the Podunk family enters the festival gates to a world of music, family and fun.
"The Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival is very excited to be part of this wonderful project that has produced A Podunk Family Reunion." said Mike Wilcox, Podunk President, "Our slogan 'The Music Of The Mountains In The Heart Of The City' is truly revealed in this song".
Featuring the talents of New England Bluegrass/Americana artist Dawn Kenney and Nashville based instrumentalistTroy Engle, the song captures what is so wonderful about summer festival season and the things unique to the Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival.
Roger Moss, festival Executive Director, believes it offers fans and attendees another way to support this special annual event. Moss said "When you purchase a copy of A Podunk Family Reunion, you will help the Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival keep the family reunion going every year."
