The Folk Brothers for July 14, 2021: When bluegrass fiddle went rock and roll

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

The Rolling Stones' hit single "Honky Tonk Woman" was countrified for inclusion on the band's 1969 Let It Bleed  LP. Gram Parsons -- who had just left The Flying Burrito Brothers to pursue his solo career -- told his pal Keith Richards to ask a young bluegrass musician named Byron Berline to add a fiddle track. Berline -- who had already done stints with Bill Monroe, The Dillards, and was preparing to join the Burritos -- recorded his part on the sidewalk outside of Elektra's Hollywood studio, picking up the iconic traffic sound used in the final mix. He went on to have a distingished career in the world of bluegrass, rock, country and Americana music, and passed away this past Saturday at 77.

Also on today's show: new tracks from Joe Troop, Slaid Cleaves, Dawn Riding, I See Hawks in LA. And so much more!
