This week we hear a cavalcade of heartwarming songs and tunes from Appalachian and piedmont musicians of the past.  Host Paul Brown also previews music featured in upcoming Across the Blue Ridge live events.  Included are songs from Red Clay Ramblers veterans Mike Craver, Jim Watson and Bill Hicks with Joe Newberry; and Big Ron Hunter, an invigorating Winston-Salem, NC blues player and songster.

Fiddler and luthier Albert Hash tells the story behind one of his favorite old time tunes, Nancy Blevins, and plays the tune along with another toe-tapper, Cricket on the Hearth.  We hear white country blues from Fields Ward, fiddle music from Norman Edmonds and the Old Timers, and much more.
