The National Folk Festival Presents Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers as Bluegrass Genre Artist
Band Celebrates #1 Song and Chart Success of Another Day from Life

July 1, 2015 (Cedarville, OH)—Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers have been selected to represent Bluegrass music at the 75th National Folk Festival to be held in Greensboro, NC in September. The National Folk Festival announced last week that for its 75th anniversary,
the Festival will feature 300 artists on seven stages in downtown
Greensboro from September 11 – 13, 2015. The three-day Festival is FREE
to the public
 with an expected attendance of over 100,000. First
presented in 1934, the National Folk Festival is the nation’s oldest
and longest-running multicultural traditional arts festival and has been
produced by the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA), since
the beginning. The National Folk Festival is a traveling event hosted
by a community for three years before moving to a new location. The
National’s stay has seeded legacy festivals (all free) in many former
host communities including: the Lowell Folk Festival, the Great Lakes
Folk Festival (E. Lansing, MI), the American Folk Festival (Bangor, ME),
the Richmond Folk Festival, the Montana Folk Festival (Butte), and
more.

“The
richness and variety of American culture never ceases to amaze. The
National Folk Festival brings together all of these astonishing
artists—who represent so many different facets of our nation’s cultural
landscape—in one place. Each one of them is a national treasure. It’s
going to be a very special 75th anniversary
year,” said Julia Olin, Executive Director of the National Council for
the Traditional Arts (NCTA), which is co-producing the Festival with
ArtsGreensboro. 

Of
their participation in the National Folk Festival, Joe Mullins states,
“I attended the National Folk Festival for the first time in the 1990s
when the NCTA brought it to Dayton, Ohio. The multi-cultural atmosphere
is something I really appreciate. We have entertained at NCTA events in
Montana and Massachusetts over the past couple of years. Entertaining
and workshopping at the National event will let us introduce Bluegrass
to thousands of new fans. Plus, Greensboro is already a great bluegrass
market so we expect long time fans to join us for an exciting weekend!” 

 
In addition to the National Folk Festival news, JMRR are also celebrating another #1 song with “The Last Parade” on the Singing News Bluegrass Top 10
for July. Written by Steve Bonafel and based on a true story, “The Last
Parade” is featured on the band’s latest Rebel Records release, Another Day from Life.
The song has been well received by both radio programmers and fans
alike, and afforded JMRR the opportunity to make a donation of $3000
last November to the Patriot Guard Riders™ through the digital download of the song. Another Day from Life continues to climb the charts and is #11 on the National Bluegrass Survey’s Top 15 Albums with the title track coming in at #15 on the Top 30 Songs chart for July.
