Monday Night July 1st at 8pm: PETER ROWAN - The First Whippoorwill

This week marks a number of notable bluegrass birthdays, including Keith Whitley, Byron Berline, Jeff Autry, and the 4th of July birthdays of Charlie Monroe and Peter Rowan.  So for our Spindale Cycle, how about Peter Rowan's 1985 tribute to his mentor (and Charlie's brother) Bill Monroe.  Sam Bush, Bill Keith, Alan O'Bryant, Richard Greene, Roy Husky Jr., and Buddy Spicher join Rowan for this great collection of Monroe classics.  Besides, in this week of celebrating our country, what's more American than bluegrass?

Thursday Night the 4th between 8pm & Midnight: SLAID CLEAVES - Still Fighting the War

One of our favorite Americana songwriters returns with one of his most solid collections yet.  On this, his 9th album, Slaid Cleaves once again covers a variety of issues affecting blue-collar/working-class Americans, as evident in some of the titles: "Rust Belt Fields", "Welding Burns", "Hometown USA", and the title track.  Appropriate topics to reflect on as we reflect on all things American for the holiday.  To quote Alan Harrison of No Depression: "I bet Dylan, Young, and Springsteen wish that they could still write songs like these."
