Playlist - 5/31/2015

Hi Folks.

South Carolina Broadcasters
The first of two major bluegrass festivals in the state of Connecticut -- Strawberry Park Bluegrass Festival -- had just ended when this show aired.  I enjoyed emceeing some of the festival, and several of the bands on the schedule at Strawberry Park were heard on this show along with much more music.  There was more of a "heritage" flavor to this show than usual with many songs coming from my archives.

Gibson Brothers at Strawberry Park

Of the Strawberry Park performers, we heard The South Carolina Broadcasters who were introduced to Eastern Connecticut last year at the same festival, and invited back this year.  They are working on their fifth album which we are eager to hear. We also heard from The Buckstankle Boys who were not at the festival, but whose fiddler, Andy Edmonds, is a member of the SC Broadcasters along with David and Ivy Sheppard.   World favorites The Gibson Brothers, riding high on their latest duo album, "Brotherhood," made two appearances on the show separated by more than 20 years.  Their earlier work still holds up.

Besides the Gibson Brothers, the show included newer music from Laura Orshaw, The Spinney Brothers, Tommy Brown, The Crowe Brothers, Jackson & Stiltner, Junior Sisk, Songs From The Road Band, Johnny Williams, Larry Sparks, The Earls of Leicester, and the debut of Mt. Airy NC band The Marshall Brothers and Highroad.  We also debuted Lizzy Long's new album on this show.

The Heritage Corner archives contributed mightily to this show with songs from Earl Taylor and the Stoney Mountain Boys, Buzz Busby, Bea Lilly, Chubby Anthony, Don Stover, Mac Martin, Larry Richardson, The Dillards, a new re-release of J.E. Mainer, Jimmie Williams & Red Ellis, Karl Shiflett, Curly Seckler, and Butch Robins.

Amy will bring you next Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe, so tune in to hear the banjos and fiddles ring.
