A new weekly series!
“Live from Pearl Street Warehouse,” airing Saturdays at 3pm EDT.
This weekly one-hour program will present a different live concert every week, recorded live at the Pearl Street Warehouse, Washington, DC’s new Americana and Bluegrass music venue. Pearl Street Warehouse opened its doors in 2017 to present live performances in American music styles on DC’s booming Southwest Waterfront.
Bluegrass Country Radio Director Chris Teskey will host, bringing his knowledge and experience in Bluegrass broadcasting to his discussion with the performing artists, helping listeners learn more about the musicians and their music.
The series premiere is Saturday, February 16, when Bluegrass Country presents the Grammy-winning Danny Barnes Trio, recorded at the Pearl Street Warehouse in January.
This marks the first joint initiative between Bluegrass Country and community institutions in the Nation’s Bluegrass Capital.
Bill Sherard, President of the Bluegrass Country Foundation remarked “Our ‘Live from the Pearl Street Warehouse’ series marks a new stage of community involvement for Bluegrass Country. It’s the kind of radio that few radio stations can or are willing to do these days. And yet, it’s radio at its best. Live and local with America’s best performers.”
About hosting “Live from Pearl Street Warehouse” Teskey added, "The ubiquity of recorded music has brought the spotlight back to live music, where listeners can experience the creative process of music as it occurs. There is nothing like it."
Tune into Bluegrass Country Radio every Saturday at 3pm EDT for more music recorded live “Live from Pearl Street Warehouse” on Washington, DC’s Southwest Waterfront.
First, my personal thanks to each of you who supported Bluegrass Country during our 2018 Drive to Survive. Your donation goes directly to cover our monthly operating expenses.
It really matters!
If you were too busy during our fund drive last week, it’s not too late to contribute. Please click “Donate Now” and make your donation. Typically, over 10% of a drive's donations are made shortly after the official Drive to Survive ends, so you’re in good company.
Please become a Sustaining Member. It’s your regular donations each month, however small, that allow us to breathe easier and plan ahead.
On behalf of the Bluegrass Country Foundation, our thanks to each of you and your financial donations, large and small. There will be still more on-air fundraisers in 2018, since we are still in our financial infancy.
Although we have a 50-year legacy, we’re still learning as a one-year old independent bluegrass station. We are working to deserve your support on behalf of bluegrass fans everywhere.
President, Bluegrass Country Foundation
