Bluegrass Review Nov 11- Nov17, 2017 (second hour) #1646

The way the world is going, small towns and small town downtowns are really taking a beating. We present a group of songs on this issue. The Gem of Bluegrass addresses types of the evolution of bluegrass. Later, we visit Caleb Klauder and Reeb Williams of the Foghorn String Band. Our purpose is to record some of the old-time songs that Caleb writes, and hear what he has to say about these songs with a really old vibe.
