Meet Our Emcee

Dan Bieman, CKNX Radio DJ

With a strong interest in Bluegrass music in my teens, attending many events and festivals, I decided to pitch a Bluegrass radio program to a Volunteer Community Radio Station in Waterloo Ontario.(CKWR). This started the radio career, which led to many opportunities including emceeing many events, clubs, and Festivals.

Hi, I am so excited to be part of the Mud Creek Bluegrass Festival. You may be asking who this guy is emceeing. Well let me tell you about me!

I have been in the Radio Business for 40 years. Currently at the CKNX family of Radio Stations in Wingham, ON. where I am a producer and an announcer.

I have emceed at the Carlisle BluegrassFestival, Tottenham Bluegrass festival, Conestoga
