"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 5/27/2007

It seemed, at least to me, that Sunday's show went by in a whirlwind. Our special feature around the 5PM timeframe was a brief conversation with one of the busiest people in Bluegrass music, Rhonda Vincent. Rhonda & the Rage will be appearing this coming Friday, June 1st at the Strawberry Park Bluegrass Festival in Preston, CT. For more info on Strawberry Park, click here.

Sunday's show also featured a musical tribute to yet another notable member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Hank Snow. Hank would have celebrated his birthday on May 9th, so it seemed fitting to put together a few of his terrific tunes that have been covered by some Bluegrass performers over the years. As with many of those great country singers of the 1940s and 1950s, the Hank Snow Songbook has been mined by Bluegrass folks many times, perhaps most notably by Charlie Waller when he'd perform his medley of Hank tunes at just about every show. Great stuff. Other features included a couple of new tunes from Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road, Paul Williams & the Victory Trio, and a Bluegrass gospel group called the Soul Pickers, as well as a trio of appropriate tunes in honor of Memorial Day.

If you're heading to Strawberry Park, tune us in on your way home next Sunday. While Jim will be at Strawberry Park doing some MC work, I'll be minding the radio show. As we mark the 25th year of Bluegrass broadcasting at WHUS, Jim and I will each have several CDs to give away over the next few weeks. Tune us in when you can.....

Have a good week -
Amy
