Bluegrass Review July 15, 2017-July 21, 2017 #1729

Most bluegrass songs relating to separation have it as a result of a breakup. But that isn’t true in this show’s opening group of songs. In these songs, separation is a result of circumstances that won’t always hold. Later, the Gem of Bluegrass tells of changes to the well-known song “Little Log Cabin in the Lane.” Finally, we chart the evolution…or devolution…of three groups of songs.
