Joel Mabus Hiawatha Music Festival Performance

Abstract/Description: Joel Mabus, who was born in 1953, was synonymous with the "American Celtic" style of music in the 1980s. The host of "In the Pines" described this style as a cross of "a southern Illinois country and bluegrass guitar player with Irish music." He describes himself as a "folksinger, instrumentalist, songwriter, and teacher." Since his first album in 1980, he has released 29 albums and headlined at many major folk festivals.
