Folklives #19: Saturday Night, Sunday Morning
Monday,Feb 4, 2008
This week we sample some choice Northwest bluegrass cuts from past Festivals. Acoustic music that encompasses both sacred and secular traditions, bluegrass brought country music tearing into the Post World War II era.
But, the legacy of bluegrass is that it has always represented a progressive take on American roots music. In that spirit, we have four Northwest bands today that range from hardcore traditionalists to jamgrass and gospel stomp. Cross-Eyed Rosie, The OHOP Valley Boys, David Goliath, and 78 RPM are up next on Folklives.
