Bluegrass Review April 29, 2017-May 5, 2017 (second hour) #1618

“Hey. Bartender,” calls the distraught. Our show features a couple of hey, bartender songs in the early going. Our Gem of Bluegrass considers playing the music old and new ways. Later, we have a musical conversation with Patchy Sanders. This traditional-leaning acoustic group tells of how they create their arrangements of songs.
