Bluegrass Review April 22, 2017-April 28, 2017 #1717

Early on, we play a couple of songs where singers are searching for self. The Gem of Bluegrass focuses on bluegrass where more than one instrument of a type share the stage, such as two fiddles or two banjos. Later, we have a musical conversation with Zoe and Cloyd. One is classically trained, and the other comes from a North Carolina old-time music family. They talk about combining their different approaches.
