Who We Lost 2020

Who We Lost 2020

It’s hard to put into words the grief we have experienced over so many great performers lost this past year, including those who lost their battle to COVID-19. When assembling our annual list of tributes it became clear that no two hours would suffice so we’ll be doing some abbreviated observations to make sure they’re not forgotten. And we’ll also be thanking those behind the scenes, the songwriters, the session folks, and we’ll even have a short collection of British influencers who touched our lives with their talent. Tune in for a comprehensive and reflective show, our first Deeper Roots show of 2021, this new year that is filled with so much promise. And it’s likely that we can all agree that the bar couldn’t have fallen much lower than it did last year.
