The inaugural Westport Roots Fest, centered around the Westport Saloon and taking place on Saturday, May 24, is approaching fast. To prepare for the pending roots romp presented by the good folks at Little Class RecordsThe Pitch will be highlighting a "song of the day" from one of the featured artists in the weeks leading up to fest. 

You will know the Kansas City Bear Fighters by the foursome's head-to-toe white suits before you hear the hugely entertaining sounds of this folksy band (whose songs often encompass such worldly themes as zombies, the apocalypse and other terrors). "Sailors" sounds like the sort of lighthearted jingle you might hear in a kindergarten classroom, but in person, lead singer Quinn McCue is a cheerful, relentless ball of enthusiasm, and he brings the Bear Fighters slightly ridiculous songs to joyous life. Don't miss this band on Saturday - you will smile, dance, and probably fall a little bit in love with McCue.
