Here’s an encore edition of a listener favorite – a performance by guitar wizards Wayne Henderson and Presley Barker at Muddy Creek Music Hall in July of 2017. 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.  Plus … the first section of the show features our traditional combination of old-time, bluegrass, blues and gospel hits from the mountain south and beyond.  It’s can’t miss listening for the season!
