Down the Road BRMT | Ep. 12: What is Bluegrass?

Jul 13, 2017

It started in Kentucky but quickly caught on across the Blue Ridge Mountains. Back in the ‘40s and '50s, musicians started playing their old instruments in new ways with lots of giddy-up. From Earl Scruggs to Steep Canyon Rangers, North Carolina has laid claim to the top talents in blistering bluegrass music.

Having WNCW as our hometown station provides a sounding-board and a resource for SCR and so many other fine bands from our area. Hearing great new music played alongside the classics gives a true perspective on how it all fits together. WNCW also serves as a reminder of how effective and inspirational community radio can be. Thanks WNCW!  - Graham Sharp (Banjo, Vocals), Steep Canyon Rangers
