Across the Blue Ridge #140 - Jim Eanes & Old-Time and Bluegrass Music

5:30pm Aug 24, 2018
Near the southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.
Paul Brown

Hear the music of a fabulous songster this week – Jim Eanes, a southside Virginia son of immigrant parents who made good in bluegrass, classic country, and gospel music.  His velvet voice and genial nature helped him along, and although his name isn’t that often mentioned today, his music is as welcoming now as it was from the 1950s through the 1980s.  Plus a wonderful selection of old-time and bluegrass songs and instrumentals from a variety of performers, present and past.
