Shreveport’s own Dirtfoot brings its own blend of “Gypsy Punk Country Grumble Boogie” to the Municipal Auditorium tomorrow — during the first Louisiana Sountrack Experience concert series.  Banjo player and backup vocalist J Bratlie tells KEEL Morning News the guys are “stoked” about the show.

“Last time we played Municipal was January ’06, when we won the Shreveport Times Battle of the Bands.  And that was kind of our breaking out at home,” Bratlie says.  “It’s kinda cool, it’s like a coming back to where we got started.  And this time, being asked by the state to be a part of this…it’s very cool.  A lot of times us north Louisiana folks don’t get included in state activities.  So being part of this is definitely an honor.”

As for other musical acts on the lineup, there’s X-Factor finalist Willie “Trey” Jones, and The Louisiana Hayride band — featuring many local artists and guest performers.  Plus, there’s are tributes to iconic radio station KWKH, blues legend Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter, Louisiana Hayride announcer Frank Page, record store owner Stan Lewis and others.

The concert portion of “From Elvis to Hank to Johnny:  Celebrating 65 Years of the Louisiana Hayride” kicks off at 7 tomorrow night.  There are other events going on beginning at 2 that afternoon.  CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS.
