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.

Monday at 10 am eastern, tune in to Ronnie Norton’s radio ramblings on Bluegrass & Beyond, from Dublin, Ireland.  Then from noon to 3, listen to a classic Gary Henderson Show from the Bluegrass Country archives from noon to 3 pm.   For many years, Gary was a mainstay on WAMU and Bluegrass Country radio.  From the Saturday morning show that introduced a whole generation to bluegrass, to his Mighty Mossy Monday shows more than four decades later, Gary presented bluegrass, classic country and gospel music with originality and flair.

Monday evening, listen to two of our current classic shows.  At 7, it’s Dick Spottswood with the Obsolete Music Hour(s), exploring the roots of today’s country, bluegrass, jazz and blues.  Then at 9 hop on board The Trail Ride as Fred Carter, aka The Griot, winds through Louisiana and Texas on a roots music journey like no other.


The Bluegrass Country Festival Roundup lists festivals around the world through the end of 2021, with links to every event so you can check out the lineup of bands, camping, etc.

Bluegrass Country is here for you 24/7, bringing you the music you love. See the whole schedule here.  If you miss a show or want to hear one again, check out our Archive Player.
