NoHum's Kingfoot made their KHUM debut this morning. The fellas discussed their association with Bigfoot, the local craft fair circuit, and how not to surf a tsunami.

The Gloria Darlings, Pandi and Milly, are a Seattle-based female folk-grass duo. An innovative string band, they sing bright, vibrant, vocal harmonies to outstanding instrumentation. These young ladies are multi-instrumentalists with a strong focus on fiddle and guitar. Often called sirens, their catchy original tunes weave through the crowd. One of them was an elementary school teacher in a rough part of Seattle, the other pretended to be a high schooler at age 23.
Sharing the tour powder-blue tourbus are the GinJars, who are full of stories about hunkering down, silently hoping, and kicking the school principal in the face.

Grant Farm will be joining us today live in studio, 4pmish. Take a National Flatpicking Champion formerly of the Emmitt/Nershi Band, add three more members drawn to each other by a love for American roots music, and you have a band that is not afraid to let the whistle scream with some blistering jams. They'll be playing the world-famous Jambalaya in Arcata on Wednesday, Nov. 13. Check them out today on KHUM.
