"Bluegrass Cafe" Playlist - 2/3/2013

Hi Folks.

The scuttlebutt around the WHUS Bluegrass Cafe studio was that there was some kind of professional athletic event taking place somewhere far away from New England at the same time this show aired.  With such inspiration, we provided a great program of bluegrass for listeners with the wisdom to know they could listen to our show and get everything they needed to know about that far-flung event online in just minutes after its conclusion. :-)

Clockwise from upper left:  Bill Emerson, Cliff Waldron,
Ed Ferris, Bill Poffinberger, Mike Auldridge
Highlights included a rock-and-roll-turned-bluegrass set that included songs that saw their first light in blues and rock & roll, but tranlated to bluegrass quite well thanks to master artists Bill Emerson, Cliff Waldron, The Grass Cats, Larry Cordle, and Balsam Range.

We also heard the 2005 Song of the Year from Phil Leadbetter who will be performing with Dale Ann Bradley and Steve Gulley a couple of times in New England this month.

Marty Raybon's new single debuted on this show as well as a couple of tracks from the new CD produced by Nathan Stanley of various artists like Vince Gill, Rebecca Lynn Howard, and Ricky Skaggs performing songs in tribute to living legend Dr. Ralph Stanley.

Gary Ferguson
We heard an early version of Long Black Veil from The Country Gentlemen followed by the new sequel by Akira Otsuka.

Gary Ferguson provided a song from his Gunny Sack about a common affliction amongst traveling bluegrass bands -- Road Tired and Brain Dead.  The late Mike Auldridge provided the great pedal steel backup.

Other newer music included songs from The Grascals, Spinney BrothersAmerican Drive, Kathy Kallick Band, Audie Blaylock, Finnders and Youngberg, Jerry Salley, Carolina Road, David Peterson, Dailey & Vincent, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Ralph Stanley II, Mickey Boles, and Larry Gillis.

Molly O'Day
The Heritage Corner brought forth songs from Jimmy Martin and Bob Osborne, Vern & Ray, The Lilly Brothers & Don Stover, and Molly O'Day.

Next Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe will either be partially preempted by UCONN sports or possibly a snowstorm if access to the studio is limited, so my best advice is to tune in at 4pm to see what is in store.
