This Week on Bluegrass Country
Start your day with A Bluegrass Morning presented by Jonathan Fine, bringing you a fresh selection of traditional and contemporary bluegrass music weekdays from 7 to 10. For the drive home, listen to the Chris Teskey Show every weekday afternoon from 3 to 6 pm, and the Michelle Murray Show Monday through Thursday from 6 to 7.
Tuesday at 10 am, join Jay Armsworthy for two hours of hard-driving traditional grass on Bluegrass on the Bay. From noon to 3, Bill Frater features the best in Americana on Freight Train Boogie. Mike Kear in Australia puts the spotlight on new releases from around the bluegrass world on Music from Foggy Hollow from 7 to 10 pm Tuesday. See the full playlist at atalkingdog.com. Dick Spottswood returns from 10 to midnight with a reprise of this week’s Obsolete Music Hour.
Live in-person music is mostly canceled this summer. The IBMA has announced that this year’s World of Bluegrass, the biggest event in the bluegrass world, will be virtual. AmericanaFest has been cancelled. There will be some festivals, with social distancing and standard precautions. They’re on our festival calendar, which is updated constantly. And there’s lots of live music online. Check festival and artist websites and social media for videos and live music feeds.
Bluegrass Country is here for you 24/7, bringing you the music you love. See the whole schedule here. As always, if you miss any show, you can find it on the Archive Player, which stores recent programs that you can access any time.
