This week we kick things off with one of the greatest fiddlers ever – Chubby Wise – who helped define the bluegrass fiddling style.  From there, we dive into some wonderful songs.  And there's a whole segment of newly released recordings from the 2016 Mountains of Music Homecoming in southwestern Virginia.  And have you ever heard an old time band featuring guitar, fiddle and cello?  You'll get to, on Across the Blue Ridge, where there's always something old, something new, and a new connection to be made.
