Paul Brown

The Sweetback Sisters (Zara Bode & Emily Miller) perform a lively mix of classic country music, swing, and new songs and tunes, backed by a first class band. They’re leading the charge in new enthusiasm among young adults for sounds of the past with a contemporary edge. We hear cuts from their new album, and interview, and some of the music that’s inspired them along the way. Plus … a bluegrass front man you may never have heard of – Vern Williams – and one of the great bands he put together after migrating from Arkansas to California after World War II.  If that’s not enough, we end up the show with an action-packed selection of fiddle tunes from radio shows and records.
