Bluegrass Review Nov 4, 2017-Nov 10, 2017 #1745

Today’s Gem of Bluegrass focuses on the evolution of bluegrass banjo playing. Later on the show, we talk to Josh Krohn, singer, player and songwriter from Omaha. He writes on some unusual topics and sings and plays some of his songs. Then, songs of sunny sides, always the preferred side of streets, mountains and towns.
