Bluegrass Country’s Fall Fundraiser is under way.

Whether you’re a new listener or a long-time contributor, now’s the time to show your support and become a member of Bluegrass Country.  Every dollar you give goes to support programming on Bluegrass Country, and your generosity keeps the music you love on the air all day, every day.

All of our revenue comes from the Bluegrass Country Foundation, a nonprofit organization that’s completely supported by your contributions.  Your tax-deductible gift in any amount is appreciated, but sustaining members who make an ongoing monthly contribution are especially important.

Bluegrass Country brings you a special event Friday night.  From 7 to 10 pm eastern time, the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Association 2018 Awards Show will air on Open Mic and Editor’s Picks.  Hear some great live performances, awards presentations and the inductions of the three latest members of the Hall of Fame, Ricky Skaggs, Tom T. and Dixie Hall, and Paul Williams.  The event took place in Raleigh on September 27 as part of the annual IBMA World of Bluegrass convention.

This week in Music from Foggy Hollow, some more new music from Backline and Smith Sisters, a brand new single from the Lonely Heartstring Band, and the full new album from Nothin’ Fancy.  And as usual, host Mike Kear will open the vault and look back to see what was on the show five years ago.  As Mike says:  “There’s nothing too serious,  the show’s only for fun, and it wont hurt you a bit.  So join me won’t you?”   You can hear the show on Sundays at 10 am  and Tuesdays at 7 pm, and Fridays at 10 pm  US Eastern time.

This week on Bluegrass Signal,  host Peter Thompson presents Live on Arrival, playing new releases of live recordings from  Hot Rize (2018), The Earls of Leiscester (2018), Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard (1965 – 69) and Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys (1969).   Listen Friday from 6 to 7 pm eastern time, rebroadcast Monday at 11 pm and Tuesday at midnight.
