This week’s High Country Music Radio (1/28/2020) features the sound of traditional roots music and the old time banjo from artists no longer with us (but live on in song!) and artists, some young and some with a bit of gray, that continue playing and interpreting that music. To discover this old time music you can start with an artist and then find out who their influences were. Then keep working your way backward and, eventually, you’ll find musicians such as Dock Boggs, the Carter family or Lead Belly. That list is long.
Tomorrow at 11:00 on High Country Music Radio KDRT 95.7FM Rusty will feature the Donut Exchange, a band recently relocated to Davis, Dock Boggs, Abigail Washburn, Tim Eriksen, Laurie Lewis and others. Thanks for listening!
