    Back Porch Bluegrass - 28-06-2022

    I’ve been re-reading the book ‘John Duffey’s Bluegrass Life’, and a couple of recordings from the early days of that bluegrass life have sneaked in to this show. I also feature a couple of tracks from a brand new recording from Peter Rowan, ‘Calling you From My Mountain’ on Rebel, which I’m sure you’ll enjoy. There’s also some old favourites like Wayne Taylor & Appaloosa, the Lonesome river Band, and the Dillards. Lots to like.

    I’ve found some 1950’s ‘classic’ bluegrass for you, as well as some great music from Sawmill Road, Nu-Blu, Tony Rice and even NZ’s own Hamilton County Bluegrass Band.

    Back Porch Bluegrass - 31-05-2022

    Some band-leaders make a point of featuring their band members, so this week I’m playing Alison Krauss & Union Station – but featuring Tim Stafford and Adam Steffey as lead vocalists - and the Lynn Morris Band – featuring Marshall Wilborn in the lead vocal role. As well, there’s some top music from Bobby Hicks, the Lilly Brothers & Don Stover, Country Ham, and banjo picker Don Parmley.
