Bluegrass Review Dec 16-Dec 22, 2017 (second hour) #1651

At close to year’s end, we’ve got a lot of new bluegrass, so we spin some of the highlights of the wave of new releases, While old-time music has a bit of a backwards-looking orientation, it also has a cutting edge. The Gem of Bluegrass considers old-time music modernity, past and present. Later, we talk to Seattle’s Vivian Williams about her original fiddle tunes.
