Bluegrass Review March 18, 2017-March 24, 2017 (second hour) #1612

There are many songs about trains in bluegrass, but what the trains stand for vary greatly. We open the show with a couple of recent examples. Then we play some well-crafted bluegrass takes on country songs. The Gem of Bluegrass focuses on the connection between Mexican music and bluegrass. Finally, we talk to Missy Werner, a singer from Hamilton, Ohio, which is near Cincinnati. Missy takes great care in crafting her sung versions songs, and she tells us about it. Plus she sings for us.
