Skank Fest 2011

Skank Festival

Durhamite Brian Hill is the lead singer of the ska band Regatta 69, even though the rest of the band is based in Berlin. There’s still a big ska scene in Europe, and Hill wants to lead a revival of the genre stateside, so he’s starting locally. He’s organized a concert series called Skank Festival 2011 that visits Greensboro this weekend.

He and co-organizer Kelly Krepelka join host Frank Stasio to talk about the festival, the genre and its future, and to play live in our studio.
