At Home With Kyle Tuttle
the Futon HOME: An Introduction
Welcome to SEASON 2 of Festy from the Futon, now called Festy From HOME!
We had a blast bringing you Season 1 of Festy From the Futon, but, alas, we upgraded our furniture. Being in our 40’s, we decided it was time to move on from our futon. (Don’t worry, we still have it. It’s now in the basement.)
Festy from the HOME is meant to inform and entertain. Originally conceived as a way to stay connected and engaged with all of you during our Coronavirus quarantine, we hope to continue this project indefinitely.
In each episode, we will bring you music festival news, interviews with artists and other music industry personalities, segments from the ‘Festy Kitchen’, and any other goofy fun we come up with!
Our At Home With… series will give you a glimpse into the home life of some of your favorite artists as well!
We hope you’ll join us on this adventure!
Festy From Home: At Home With Kyle Tuttle
Welcome to Season 2 Festy From Home with Festy Go Nuts.
A conversation with banjo wizard Kyle Tuttle.
Kyle recently released “Live in 2020,” a live album recorded just before the 2020 pandemic shut down most shows.
Kyle performs a few songs off of the album from his basement studio. We chat with Kyle about that show, the recording of it, and his band. We also talk about his musical roots, and how Yonder Mountain String Band and then being in the Jeff Austin Band influenced him as a person and musician.
Along the way, we touch on pizza cutters, port-a-pots, Ozzy, Metallica, and a whole lot more!
Just want to listen? Here’s the audio-only version:

Support Festy GoNuts!
Desperate times, right?
Seriously, though, many of you may not know about the ‘behind the scenes’ of Festy GoNuts.
Festy GoNuts is run entirely by Jason and Kelly Law, and is very much a labor of love. Sure, we get to see amazing music and go to wonderful festivals, but it doesn’t exactly pay the bills.
For our ‘day jobs’, we run a marketing company, GoNuts Marketing. Many of our clients are in the hospitality or entertainment industries – including several restaurants and musicians.
Needless to say, work is in short supply at the moment. (Need marketing assistance? Let us know!)
We, along with everyone else, are reaching out to our community for support.
We would love to continue to bring the music coverage and news that the Festy GoNuts audience has come to expect.
We hope that in sharing stories, news and events, we are making a positive impact on the music community, and helping others in need.
By supporting Festy GoNuts, you are, in effect, supporting the artists and festivals that we all love so dearly!
Thank you for supporting Festy GoNuts!
