Across the Blue Ridge #77- Listening to the Classics of old time, bluegrass, blues & gospel

4:00pm Jun 16, 2017
Cousin Emmy (Cynthia May Carver) is one of the many entertainers we hear on this week’s Across the Blue Ridge listening session.
Paul Brown Collection

The first of this year’s Across the Blue Ridge summer listening sessions brings us a wonderful selection of old and new songs and tunes demonstrating the many cultural crossroads in American traditional and popular music.  Wherever you are, you can enjoy old time mountain music from Kentucky’s Cousin Emmy; bluegrass from Ralph Stanley and Bill Monroe; mountain classics from Mainer’s Mountaineers; and blues from Pink Anderson.  There’s much more, including cuts from a new album by Chicago-based band Big Sadie, and a song from roots music veteran Bob Bovee.
