This Week on Bluegrass Country

Some listeners to our 88.5-HD2 signal may encounter reception problems in the greater Washington, DC area while our host station, WAMU, is in the process of installing a new improved antenna.  The project is anticipated to be completed by February 3, 2020.  During the renovation, WAMU will be broadcasting from an auxiliary antenna in Arlington, VA so listeners in outlying areas particularly in suburban Maryland may not be able to reliably receive Bluegrass Country during this period.  Online listeners will not be affected.  Click here for more information. 

Monday at midnight and Friday at 9 pm eastern time, Editors Picks presents the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band with special guest John Hartford, recorded live in New York in 1974.

New music from Kenny and Amanda Smith, Eliza Meyer and more this week on Music from Foggy Hollow.  Listen Sunday at 10 am eastern.  Read more about Bluegrass Country’s Australian import at atalkingdog.com.

This week on Bluegrass Signal from California, Allegra Thompson presents Teardrops In the Snow.  This show features songs about civilian and military casualties of war, especially during WWII.  Listen Friday at 6 pm, Monday at 11 pm and Tuesday at midnight.

Friday night at 7 eastern time on Open Mic, a presentation from Music City Roots, recorded in June of 2018 at the City Winery in Nashville.  We’ll hear performances from Jim Lauderdale, the Travelin’ McCourys, Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers and Nora Jane Struthers.

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.

Old Time Music on Bluegrass Country

Old time music is the ancestor of bluegrass, and a lively modern musical form as well. And no station anywhere plays more old time music than Bluegrass Country.
