"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 12/9/2018

Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe featured a bunch of favorite recordings of 2018, a bit of Christmas music, and a whole lot more.  Hope you were able to join us!


Daniel Grindstaff & Tim Raybon headline
the new band, Merle Monroe.
Among the 2018 selections we shared was a bunch of favorite music from the year, including selections from the John Duffey tribute record, the Del McCoury Band, the Kathy Kallick Band, High Fidelity, Junior Sisk, the Feinberg Brothers, Bill & the Belles, Mickey Galyean & Cullen's Bridge, Becky Buller, Roland White, Sister Sadie, Balsam Range, and the gospel compilation of songs written by Rick Lang.  We even included a brand new Christmas song from a brand new band, Merle Monroe



Dreamcatcher at Blistered Fingers BGF - 2018
In addition there was music from a forthcoming recording by a young band called Dreamcatcher.  To those of us who have attended Bluegrass festivals in the northeast over the past couple of decades, the young man who is heading up Dreamcatcher is a familiar face:  guitar picker Aaron Foster of New York.  Nice to see bands formed by young kids who were always found picking at Bluegrass festivals.

Hope you enjoyed the show, and that you'll consider joining me once again next Sunday afternoon!


Enjoy the week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 12/2/2018

It's December!  That means a smattering of Bluegrass Christmas (and Hannukah) tunes were introduced into our Bluegrass Cafe playlist today.  Look for more Christmas tunes as we work our way towards the 25th.

We also shared a whole bunch of music from 2018 releases during Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe program, including music from Five Mile Mountain Road Band, the tribute record to John Duffey, Roland White, the Rick Lang gospel collection, NewTown, the Grascals (from the "Come See About Me" collection), Balsam Range, Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard, Dede Wyland, the Feinberg Brothers, Rhonda Vincent, Bill & the Belles, Hot Rize, Flashback, Del McCoury, and High Fidelity.  We also listened to a bit of a demo from southern New England-based band, Rock Hearts.

Hope you heard something you enjoyed today, and that you'll consider joining us once again next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM.

Have a good week!
