Bluegrass Review Jan 6-Jan 12, 2017 #1802

After playing some recent bluegrass, we present one of this show’s musical interviews. We talk to Rebekah Long about her musical career, and what she likes to write about: frequently it is her life. Later in the broadcast, we talk to Joe d’Esposito and Dusty Ryder of The Railsplitters. The pair also write from experiences, but the musical mood they express is a different kind of bluegrass than that of Rebekah. On this show, we also re-experience a few of the great songs of songwriting trend-setter, Kris Kristofferson.
