Banjo

This week’s broadcast of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce features fiery picking and beautiful harmonies from one of the very best bluegrass bands of all time, Blue Highway. Rhiannon Giddens also returns with a powerful solo performance that features banjo and beat box. Exciting acoustic band Flatt Lonesome show why they’ve earned multiple awards and nominations in just 5 short years.

This week on Our Roots are Showing - host Steve DeLap will be interviewing banjoist Jayme Stone.  

From Jayme Stone's website:  

"Two-time Juno-winning banjoist, composer and instigator Jayme Stone makes music inspired by sounds from around the world—bridging folk, jazz and chamber music. His award-winning albums both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling sounds."  

Brian Griffith will be welcoming the Banjo Babes to our studios this Thursday morning around 10am. They'll be playing and talking about their upcoming show at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa on Friday, December 11 at 7:00 pm. Click here for tickets.
