Across the Blue Ridge host Paul Brown (L) and David Bragger jam at The Old Time Tiki Parlour, Bragger’s home and studio in Los Angeles. Bragger is a musician and documenter who is recording as many current roots musicians as he can.

The allure of traditional southern music has spread across the U.S. and around the world. Case in point: David Bragger is a Los Angeles audio-video producer and musician. He’s energetically documenting performers of music with southern American roots. In a visit with Across the Blue Ridge host Paul Brown, he explains how he’s come to be so taken up with music of the southeastern U.S., and we hear some of what he’s recorded of other performers at his home studio. Also on the show: some classic old-time and bluegrass songs from current and past performers; and a selection of powerful fiddle tunes for dancing.
