Through the Bluegrass

Through the Bluegrass

Springtime sounds from classic corners this week. Now, we all know that real bluegrass is green but, like the music’s own origins which are steeped in gospel, blues, and tradition, we overlook the formalities and accept the generalities’.  This week’s Deeper Roots will take a journey with the greats (Ralph Stanley, Ricky Skaggs, and The Monroe Brothers to name a few) while also tipping our hats to the new-grass sounds of David Thom, Sam Bush, Tony Furtado, and Caleb Klauder & Reeb Willms. We offer different takes outside the lines including some Charlie Haden and Brennen Leigh. A Friday morning celebration of the old home place and the little white church where traditional rings … coming to you from Bodega Bay: KWTF Community Radio.
