"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 11/11/2018

On this Veterans Day, we say THANK YOU to those who have served this country in the Armed Forces.  Your service is appreciated!

In addition to celebrating veterans, we spent a few minutes having a telephone conversation with Jim Sharpley, 2018 Stage Captain of the Podunk Bluegrass Festival.  Jim told us a bit about Podunk's new Goshen, CT home in 2019, as well as a series of Showcase Nights planned throughout the eight counties of Connecticut with the purpose of exposing Bluegrass to a wider audience.  If you would like to learn more about these shows, or if you know of a band who might like to perform at an upcoming showcase, please call Myrna Riquier at 860-455-9400.  In future, there will also be listing of Showcase Nights happenings located at www.natchaugmusic.com.

We included some 2018 music, too, this time from the Earls Of Leicester, Sister Sadie, High Fidelity, the John Duffey tribute record, the Highland Travelers, Hot Rize, the Family SowellDavid Davis & the Warrior River Boys, the Feinberg Brothers, and Mickey Galyean & Cullen's Bridge.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in this week.  We'd love for you to join us once again next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM.

Enjoy the week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 11/4/2018

Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe was the first for November, and it included a whole lot of fine music that has been released so far in 2018.  We also paid birthday tributes to Whisperin' Bill Anderson, whose songs have been covered in the World of Bluegrass more than a few times, as well as a song from a banjo legend who celebrates his birthday on this very day, Alan Munde (born November 4, 1946).   Hope you able to tune in to the show!

In addition to birthday tributes, the 2018 music in this show included songs from Larry Cordle, High Fidelity, the John Duffey tribute recording, the Kathy Kallick Band, Nothin' Fancy, Mickey Galyean & Cullen's Bridge, Carolina Blue, the Appalachian Road Show, Balsam Range, Bill & the Belles, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage, the Earls Of Leicester, Hot Rize, Alan Munde & Billy Bright, the Feinberg Brothers, the Price Sisters, and David Davis & the Warrior River Boys.

Please make plans to join us once again next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM.

Enjoy the week!
