This week’s Across the Blue Ridge presents classic fiddle tunes from Chubby Wise and others; country music pioneers including Samantha Bumgarner, Hank Williams and Patsy Cline; and some great gospel, blues and bluegrass performances from artists including Algia Mae Hinton, Laurie Lewis, Lynn Morris and The Delmore Brothers.  It’s great music all the way, and all of it reflecting the evolution of tradition in the South and beyond.  Host Paul Brown provides the background you need to make this hour of listening an experience that will help you appreciate America’s music traditions.
