This week we feature exciting bluegrass and old time music from a Latin perspective, along with our usual classics from senior and contemporary artists. Hear Che Apalache, a youthful band of four hailing from the US, Argentina and Mexico. Their fusion of styles and traditions works beautifully to showcase the core characteristics of most traditional music around the world: a good accessible melody; strong and driving rhythm, and ongoing drone notes giving the music a sense of continuity. Led by Joe Troop, originally from North Carolina, Che Apalache made a brief southeast U.S. tour and a big hit among roots music fans this past summer. Of course, this week’s show also contains a collection of songs and tunes in classic old time, bluegrass and blues styles – from The Blue Sky Boys; Tom, Brad & Alice; Brandon Lee Adams and Jason Cade.
