Bill Monroe … the Foddrell Family of Patrick County, Virginia … Etta Baker … and Elizabeth Cotten are just some of the musicians featured on this week’s Across the Blue Ridge episode.
Paul Brown

This week we take a fascinating trip … back in time!  We start with some progressive bluegrass from fiddler Michael Cleveland and banjoist Alan Munde, and trace a path back to Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, the Shetland Islands off the coast of Scotland, and African-inspired blues.  Join Paul Brown for an unforgettable selection of music that will have you making new connections and wanting more.
