Mar 05, 2012 - City slickers can't play country music, or so the folk wisdom held until the first-ever Battle of the Bands at the San Francisco Bluegrass and Old-Time Festival. In post-performance interviews conducted with Memoir Tree, the free oral history app, five city-based bands explained how they wound up battling for the title of the best country roots-music band in the West. Memoir Tree is in the final phase of beta testing, and will be released in March, 2012 to the Apple Store.
