Even though the show was shortened, we still found some time (and a few songs) to pay tribute to Country Music Hall of Famer Maxine Brown, who died on January 21st at the age of 87. While not a Bluegrass performer, Maxine was a fine songwriter, and her autobiography, Looking Back To See, is worth a read for those who want to learn more about the musical adventures of a feisty Arkansas gal who attained Country Music's highest honor (with brother Jim Ed and sister Bonnie, of course).
Hope to join you next week for three full hours of our Bluegrass Cafe, weather- and sports-permitting!
Have a good week!
