"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 7/19/2015

Sunday's radio show began Bluegrass versions of a few songs that Jim had played during his 2-hour broadcast of the old-time Red Rooster Party.  It's always neat to hear an original version of a song and then, the Bluegrass version that followed it.  

Ricky Skaggs's autobiography
was published in 2014.
We belatedly celebrated the birthdays of three Bluegrassers who celebrated their birthdays on July 18th:  Wayne Taylor (born 7/18/1952), Ricky Skaggs (born 7/18/1954), and Jesse Brock (born 7/18/1972).  To that end, we played one song each from Wayne Taylor and Jesse Brock, as well as a couple of songs featuring Ricky Skaggs from recordings he made with Keith Whitley, the Country Gentlemen, J.D. Crowe & the New South, and Ralph Stanley.

There was time for some newer music from the Feinberg Brothers, Sideline, the Seth Sawyer Band, Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road, Dale Ann Bradley, Chris Jones & the Night Drivers, the Gibson Brothers, Bear Minimum, Big Country Bluegrass, and Feller & Hill.  Another "new" recording is one that was recorded in 2012, but has not been made available until this year:  Merle Haggard & Mac Wiseman's "Timeless," available only from Cracker Barrel.  This last record IS NOT a pure Bluegrass recording, but given the legendary status of both singers and the instrumentation from many wonderful Bluegrass performers, this is certainly a worthy Bluegrass-friendly recording.  We'll be listening to more of it in future shows, no doubt.

Hope you enjoyed the show, and that you'll be sure to join Jim next Sunday afternoon - 4-7PM - for another Bluegrass Cafe!

Amy 


P.S.  I mentioned on the air today that one of Ricky Skaggs' earliest television appearances can be seen on YouTube.  It comes from 1961, when 7-year-old Ricky played a couple of tunes on the Flatt & Scruggs Grand Ole Opry Show.  It's a classic clip, but if you haven't seen it, you're encouraged to watch it here:

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 7/5/2015

On this 5th day of July, we started the show with a bang:  five patriotic numbers from the likes of Lynwood Lunsford, Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, the Osborne Brothers, John McEuen, and, of course, the Country Gentlemen.  Hope you've had a wonderful and safe holiday weekend...


The Seth Sawyer Band played several tunes from their new CD at
the recent Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival.
The Feinberg Brothers made their
Jenny Brook -- and Vermont -- debut.

Sunday's show included music from four traditional bands who hail from New York or New England.  These include the debut self-titled recording from Long Island's Feinberg Brothers, Bear Minimum's "The Automobile Of Life," "Green Mountain Girl" by the Seth Sawyer Band, and a not-so-new-but-new-to-us recording from Vermont resident, Bob Amos ("Sunrise Blues").  

We also shared a few songs from Bluegrass and Bluegrass-related folks who celebrate or would have celebrated their birthdays during the first few days of July, including Jimmy Gaudreau, Charlie Monroe, Peter Rowan, and Charlie Louvin.


There was a bit of newer music to be heard, too, from Big Country Bluegrass, the Roland White Band, Springfield Exit, John Curtis Goad, Carolina Road, the Grass Cats, the Gibson Brothers, and Shannon & Heather Slaughter.  We also heard a couple of tracks from the soon-to-be-released record from Chris Jones & the Night Drivers on Mountain Home:  "Run Away Tonight."

Hope you had a safe and happy 4th of July, and that you'll have a great week!  Jim will join you for another big edition of our "Bluegrass Cafe" next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM.

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 6/21/2015

Happy Birthday, Eddie Adcock!  
June 21st was a day to celebrate a lot of things:  the First Day of Summer, Father's Day, and the 77th birthday of a bona fide Bluegrass legend (and Bluegrass Hall of Famer) - Eddie Adcock.  

My own father, Alton Orlomoski
For Father's Day, we played several selections featuring Dear Old Dad as the primary subject from lots of performers, including Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, the Gibson Brothers, Bob Paisley & the Southern Grass, Dale Ann Bradley, the Spinney Brothers, and New England bands, Traver Hollow and the Bear Bridge Band.  Many bands in the Bluegrass World include fathers and their offspring -- male and female.  To that end, there was lots of music from bands with fathers and sons, and even some fathers and daughters!  Those bands included Bill Monroe with James Monroe, Bob Paisley & the Southern Grass, Earl Scruggs with Family & Friends, the Whites, Ralph Stanley with Ralph Stanley II, the Bluegrass Cardinals, the Del McCoury Band, the Feinberg Brothers, White Mountain Bluegrass, and the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band.  

A tiny bit of newer music was in the show, too, most notably a couple of songs from the new Big Country Bluegrass recording from Rebel Records called "Country Livin'."  Other newer recordings came from Darren & Brooke Aldridge, Sideline, Billy Hurt, Jr., the Feinberg Brothers, Troy Boone, the Trinity River Band, Louie Setzer, Bear MinimumVolume Five, and David Peterson.

Next Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe will have a guest host, and we sure hope you'll tune in!  Have yourself a great week!

Playlist - 6/14/2015

Hi Folks.

Today was BMI reporting day, so songwriter information for all songs on the show was reported.

The featured segment was an interview with David Peterson on the release of his seventh album, Old Time Power.  This is David's first bluegrass album in a decade and his first all gospel effort in 20 years.  It's a good one, too.  David literally had a who's who of top bluegrass musicians helping him out --names like Grisman, Compton, Cushman, Crouch, and Duncan. You will be hearing much more of it in coming months.




We introduced new music from Robert Lester & James Stiltner -- a great singer and picker duo from western Virginia.  We also had new music from Lorraine Jordan & Carolina RoadDale Ann Bradley, and Dr. Ralph and Nathan Stanley.

Other current favorites were Steve Gulley, Tommy Brown, Marteka and William (who also provided the background for the events calendar), Adkins & Loudermilk, The Spinney Brothers, The Gibson Brothers, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Larry Gillis, and Larry Sparks.


Heritage Corner selections included music from Reno, Smiley, & Harrell; Buzz Busby; Charlie Moore; Red Allen & Frank Wakefield; J. E. Mainer; and The Lilly Brothers & Don Stover.
