As this is the weekend of the 35th annual Joe Val Bluegrass Festival in Framingham, MA, we started our abbreviated broadcast with two songs from the festival's namesake, Bluegrass Hall of Famer Joe Val.
We belatedly celebrated the birthday of Country Music Hall of Famer, the Texas Troubadour, Ernest Tubb (born February 9, 1914). Many Bluegrass performers have recorded songs made famous by the original E.T., including a full record of Tubb tunes from the Osborne Brothers. Other performers of Ernest Tubb songs include Flatt Lonesome, Rhonda Vincent, and the Johnson Mountain Boys.
And even though Sunday's broadcast was short, we still included a little bit of new music, including selections from a brand new record from Junior Sisk ("Load The Wagon"), Dale Ann Bradley & Tina Adair, Appalachian Road Show, and the duo of Buddy Melton & Milan Miller.
Next Sunday's show should be a full three-hour broadcast Please consider joining us, won't you?
Have a great week!
