"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 6/9/2019

Po' Ramblin Boys at Jenny Brook 2018
(with guest fiddler, Laura Orshaw)
During Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe, we talked a bit more about the upcoming Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival, and included a chat with mandolin picker C.J. Lewandowski of the Po' Ramblin' Boys...a band who just happened to have won the 2018 IBMA Emerging Act of the Year.  The band will be one of many fine performers at Jenny Brook at the end of this month -- get to Vermont, if you can!

In addition to sharing a bit of new music and some classic favorites, we also included a few songs featuring the talents of the late Ray Deaton (October 6, 1952-June 4, 2019), a veteran of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, as well as one of the founders of IIIrd Tyme Out.  

Hope you got a chance to tune in, but if not, you can always think about joining us next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM.

Enjoy the week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 6/2/2019

Chris & Taylor Malpass 
While Sunday's show turned out to be another one shortened by a UConn Baseball NCAA tournament game, we still had enough time to enjoy new music from Maine's Sandy River Ramblers, a few more songs in celebration of Tom T. Hall's 83rd birthday, and a nice chat with Christopher Malpass of the Malpass Brothers.  Hope you were able to join us!

And don't forget:  the Malpass Brothers will bring their super-traditional country sound to New England at the 19th annual Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival in Tunbridge, VT on June 26th and June 27th.  

Have a great week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 5/26/2019

Sunday's show got a delayed start as the UConn Baseball team was losing their tournament game, so the show went on the air sometime around 22 minutes past the hour.  No big deal, though, as we still tried to squeeze in a whole lot of fine music...and I think we succeeded!

It's Memorial Day weekend, and that means that we spent a good half-hour sharing songs of soldiers who gave their lives in the service of this country.  

We also enjoyed a little bit of newer music, which was released within the last year or so.  Among these selections was music from Carolina Blue, the Feinberg Brothers, Danny Paisley & the Southern Grass, High Fidelity, Connecticut's own Grass Routes, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, and Balsam Range.  In addition, there was brand-new music from projects by the Lonesome River Band, Tom Mindte, Mason Via, & Ben Somerville, the Edgar Loudermilk Band featuring Jeff Autry, the All Stars Of Bluegrass, and a gospel project from Alan Bibey & Grasstowne.  


Even though we didn't get to celebrate the 83rd birthday of Country & Bluegrass Music Hall of Famer Tom T. Hall (born May 25, 1936) quite as thoroughly as we had intended, we still shared a few numbers written and/or performed by the Storyteller.  Perhaps the Tom T. celebration will continue next Sunday...

And don't forget our upcoming Jenny Brook Giveaway drawing:  we will be drawing one winner for a 6-day pass to next month's Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival (Tunbridge, VT -- June 25-30, 2019) during the show next Sunday, June 2nd.  To enter the contest, just send us an email:  bgcafe@gmail.com OR comment on the Jenny Brook post on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WHUS.BluegrassCafe).  Pretty easy, huh?  Don't delay -- enter today!

Enjoy the week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 5/19/2019

We've had a slight delay in sharing our playlist from Sunday's Bluegrass Cafe, but better late than never...


Sunday's show was the first for our "Summer" season at WHUS.  To that end, in addition to sharing a few selections that were released in 2019, we also included a few songs featuring Terry Eldredge, whose departure from the Grascals has recently been announced.  We also included several songs from a brand-new recording by a long-standing Connecticut Bluegrass band:  Grass Routes.  Their latest recording is called, "Buffalo Nickel, Liberty Dime."  

An occasional "feature" this Summer will be a spotlight on certain letters of the alphabet, meaning on some weeks, we will choose a letter and make it a "sponsor" of the program.  This week, we started at the beginning of the alphabet with a baker's dozen tunes from individual performers and bands whose name starts with the letter A.  The list included Bluegrass Hall of Famers Eddie Adcock, Red Allen, and Mike Auldridge, as well as bands like Avery County, Jay Armsworthy & Eastern Tradition, ASH & W, Tom Adams, and Paul Adkins & the Borderline Band, just to name a few.  What letter will we choose next?  Keep listening to find out...

We'll be looking for you once again this coming Sunday.  Hope you have a fine week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 5/12/2019

My mother, Eleanor Orlomoski, with her only daughter
During Sunday's show on Mother's Day, our primary focus was on MOM, as it should be.  We shared lots of songs celebrating moms still with us and moms who live on only in memory, but either way, there's no question that none of us would be here without MOM.  Hope you enjoyed your day!

In addition to songs about mom, we shared a whole lot of brand-new music, too.  Among the newer selections were tunes from Carolina Road, Christian Davis, Big Country Bluegrass, Merle Monroe, the Larry Stephenson Band, the Cadleys, Dale Ann Bradley, Blue Moon Rising, Irene Kelley, Mile Twelve, and Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers.

Hope you were able to join us for Sunday's show, but if not, you'll get another chance on Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM.

Have a great week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 5/5/2019

Sunday's show was one for remembering a Bluegrass Hall of Famer and introducing a whole lot of new music.  Hope you were able to tune in for a bit, at least.


John Starling with Ben Eldredge & Tom Gray
Bluegrass Hall of Fame induction
Raleigh, NC
October 2, 2014
On May 2nd, one of the founding members of the Seldom Scene -- Dr. John Starling -- died at the age of 79.  Starling's manner of singing was not in the "high lonesome" style, and in that way, he was able to spark an interest in Bluegrass for some who may not have otherwise had any interest in the music.  In 2014, the Bluegrass Hall of Fame inducted Starling into it's ranks, along with other original Seldom Scene-ers Mike Auldridge and Ben Eldredge (other Seldom Scene founders John Duffey and Tom Gray had been inducted into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame earlier with the "classic" grouping of Country Gentlemen).  Though John Starling had not made records in recent years, his influence will be forever felt in the world of Bluegrass music.

Sunday also happened to be a major day for sharing new Bluegrass music, as we debuted selections from Nu-Blu, Jerry Salley, Irene Kelley, Merle Monroe, Aaron Bibelhauser, Buddy Melton & Milan Miller, Blue Moon Rising, Sally Berry, and Ronnie Bowman

Hope you enjoyed our program today.  Please consider joining us once more next Sunday afternoon, 4-7PM.

Have a good week!

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 4/28/2019

Back in the saddle again!  After a week's absence, on Sunday, I returned to our Bluegrass Cafe with a mixed bag of classic, brand new, and everything in between.  Many thanks to Cathy Day and son Keegan Day for filling in on Easter Sunday.  If you missed their rendition of our Bluegrass Cafe, click here to view the Days' playlist.  Hope you had a fine holiday!


Recognize this mandolin player from 1965?
Our mixed bag today included songs from a couple of New England's contribution to the Bluegrass World:  Vermont's Dan Tyminski and Jimmy Gaudreau of Rhode Island.  These two have made the Bluegrass World a better place, and we will continue to share their musical contributions whenever we can.

There were two notable new recordings to share this week:  "30" from the Larry Stephenson Band (celebrating Larry's 30 years as a bandleader), and the second recording from an up-and-coming Boston-based band, Mile Twelve ("City On A Hill").  

If you didn't get a chance to listen today, hope you will consider joining us for next Sunday's show.

Until then, have a good week!

Amy O.

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 4/14/2019

While Sunday was a semi-lovely, pleasantly warm April day, we still had no real plan for our Bluegrass Cafe.  Instead, our musical selections were sort of a random "free-for-all," but still, it seemed like everything went just fine.  Hope you were able to listen.  

We did have a Country Music Hall of Famer's birthday to celebrate on this April 14th -- the Coal Miner's Daughter, Loretta Lynn (born April 14, 1932).  While Loretta's music hasn't been overly covered in the World of Bluegrass, we did find a song or four to share.  We also remembered the birthday of fiddle great Stuart Duncan (born April 14, 1964), included recent music from 2019 and late 2018, and included a whole lot of Bluegrass favorites.

Be sure to join Cathy Day on Easter Sunday on our WHUS airwaves, 4-7PM.

Have a great week!

Amy O.

"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 4/7/2019

It was a full three-hour show for our Bluegrass Cafe on this first Sunday of April.  We included classic Bluegrass, brand-new Bluegrass, and everything in between -- just like we aim to do on nearly every show.

In addition, as we still had a bunch of Bluegrass versions of Merle Haggard (born April 6, 1937) tunes to share, we put together seven of 'em for Sunday's program.  We also briefly celebrated the upcoming birthday of a multi-award winning, outstanding guitar picker, singer, and Country Music Hall of Famer, Vince Gill (born April 12, 1957).  Gill is no stranger to Bluegrass audiences, so we found a tune or two to share in honor of his birthday.

There was a touch of new-for-2019 music, as well, including selections from Amanda Cook, David Grier, Aubrey Eisenman & the Clydes, Colebrook Road, and Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers.

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

Enjoy the week!

Amy O.
