Playlist - 2/16/2014 - Joe Val Festival Recovery

Hi Folks,

I was supposed to be out of the country this weekend on business, but my plans changed at the very last minute.  This allowed me not only to attend the excellent Joe Val Festival, but to take my turn at Bluegrass Cafe and save Amy from having to cut Joe Val short and fill-in for me.

There were several mini-features on this show including a tribute to two of the outstanding brother duos in bluegrass today, The Gibson Brothers and The Spinney Brothers.  We played a song or two from the older catalog as well as songs from the most recent recordings.

We also were delighted to play a track from each of seven recent CD reissues of complete Rural Rhythm albums from their 1960s catalog.  The artists included J.E. Mainer, Lee Moore, Red Smiley, Curly Fox, Hylo Brown, and Jim Greer.

Classic and relatively rare vinyl is a favorite on Bluegrass Cafe, and the Heritage Corner provided part of a live performance of The Stanley Brothers at the Ash Grove in 1962, tracks from LPs of Mac Martin and The Potomac Valley Boys capped by a 45 single from Hubert Davis and The Season Travelers.  Other Heritage Corner selections came from The Johnson Mountain Boys,

I own the majority of recordings of Delia Bell and Bill Grant and brought some of them out of the Heritage Corner archives to play several of their songs throughout the show.

New music was provided by Noam Pikelny, Larry Efaw & The Bluegrass Mountaineers, Don Rigsby, Doyle Lawson, Jim Lauderdale, Little Roy & Lizzy, Rhonda Vincent, Junior Sisk & Joe Mullins, Scott Brannon, Alex Leach, and Blue Highway.

Regional music was provided by Bear Bridge Band and Nick Anderson & Shady Creek.

WHUS Radiothon will start next Saturday and Bluegrass Cafe will be involved the next two Sundays, Feb. 23 and Mar.2.  Radiothon is the only time of the year when both Amy and I will be in the studio at the same time, and we are usually joined by James & Cathy Ward, my wife Marti who also co-hosts Red Rooster Party with me, and many of our friends and family on the phones.  We hope you will consider joining us for Radiothon.  You never know what is going to happen!
