Bluegrass Review Oct 28, 2017-Nov 3, 2017 (second hour) #1644

So many bluegrass songs are about relations, including functional and dysfunctional. We contrast different kinds of relationships in a couple of different songs. Then we take another look at what Autumn signifies in bluegrass songs. Then, it gets a little spooky. We focus on songs where people and objects appear, when everybody knows they are not supposed to.
