High Country Music Radio - Will the Circle be Unbroken - on May 26th, 2020

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.

Tune in KDRT 95.7 FM Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon, or from 7 to 8 p.m, or stream at @KDRT.org

Hey Rusty.....have just listened to tonights show...some great stuff much of which i had not heard! Of course Matty Groves is a great Fairport tune and i was lucky enough to catch them a few years ago at their annual Cropredy Festival...still going strong! Thanks for playing Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings last time out and if this slots into your general remit I think your listeners would love it! Maybe preface it with " DO NOT poke with a stick and play LOUD!" Ray Willie Hubbard...Snake Farm! A great music station and thanks for the heads up !
