Dave Stroud will explore the gospel form, both African American and Country, focusing on the theme of ‘going to the water’ to be saved. The songs reflect the celebration of ‘washing the soul’ as a tradition of a Christian faith. The performers will include Da Costa Woltz, Clefs of Harmony, Dock Walsh, and Ernest Stoneman’s Dixie Mountaineers. There will also be a helping of passionate sermons to make sure we keep our paths straight.

Finger Pickin’ Good

Finger Pickin' Good
Finger Pickin’ Good

I’ll say…finger pickin’ good music featuring finger pickin’ great performers from the past century. We’ve got a two hour sampling of sounds from the likes of Doc Watson, Jorma Kaukonen, Chet Atkins, Tommy Emmanuel, Blind Blake, Riley Puckett, and (of course) Merle Travis. Our Wednesday evening will keep it pretty folksy and traditional for the most part, leaning on tradition and the very best in string picking and chord strumming. All this and more on our roots music show which is produced exclusively for Sonoma County community radio, both KWTF and KOWS.
