This week, as gardens come in, people start out on summer trips to home places and family, we hear a selection of songs reflecting the southern attachment to home and hearth, and the tensions between ranging far afield and staying put.  We listen to songs of memory, and consider how “the good old days” were just that in some ways, but not necessarily in others.  Plus we hear songs of hope, some new music in old modes – and a great selection of guitar-based and fiddle-based dance music.  Altogether, good listening and great stories in the Across the Blue Ridge tradition.
