Indiana Music: Rusty Bladen finalist in Merlefest songwriting contest

Madison’s roots-rocker Rusty Bladen is a finalist in a prestigious songwriting contest and will travel to Wilkesboro, North Carolina to perform on April 29th at 2pm as part of the four-day Merlefest Music Festival.

“Bakersfield Wine”, a song co-written by Bladen with Louisville’s Mickey Clark, is one of three songs in the country category (though the song is more Americana than the broader country designation) “Chris Austin Songwriting Contest“. Winners will play between headlining acts on the 29th.

Bladen will play at Bloomington’s Four Winds Resort on May 29, and headline the Greenwood Park Mall Concert Series on June 16.

He also hosts a weekly webcast on his website, called “Live from the Living Room” – a 30-minute show presented live on the web and archived for on-demand viewing.
