We kick off the new year with a great selection of old time and bluegrass songs and tunes. Then we have excerpts from a Muddy Creek Music Hall show from July of 2017 featuring Blue Ridge region guitar wizards Wayne Henderson and Presley Barker. Wayne is a National Heritage Fellowship recipient, a world-renowned luthier and finger-picking guitar player.  Presley, who was 13 when this was recorded, discovered flat pick guitar at age 7 through hearing the great Doc Watson on the radio, and was hooked.  Listen to this charming, good-humored duo and you'll end up the hour with a smile on your face, guaranteed.
