Celtic Songlines A Celebration of Mabon, the Autumn Equinox

It is the time to celebrate Mabon, the Autumn Equinox, and honor the changing seasons and celebrate the harvest. This is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is abundant crops or other blessings. It's a time of plenty, of gratitude, and of sharing our abundance with those less fortunate.

High Country Music Radio 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken'

This week's High Country Music Radio will feature songs from "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," a 1972 album that introduced many of us to bluegrass and old-time country music. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band wanted to play alongside their bluegrass heroes and bring together two generations of musicians. The Nashville- and Appalachian-based artists include Roy Acuff, Mother Mabelle Carter, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Norman Blake, Vassar Clements, and others. The result is a critically acclaimed album recorded with minimal processing, retaining much of the musician's dialogue between songs.
