Tribute to Merle Haggard
When we first saw the tribute to Merle at the Humboldt Folklife festival we knew we needed to bring the show to Redwood Coast Music Festival for an encore. We reached out to band leader Ken Jorgenson who put together a collection of some of Humboldt's finest to take the stage in honor of the Country legend.
