We play a diverse assortment of music ranging from mountain ballads of the Appalachians to the zydeco music of the Cajun people. Artists ranging from Fiddlin’ John Carson to Lester Flatts and Earl Scruggs to the Infamous Stringdusters. You’ll hear music recorded 80 years ago, and music recorded just a few months ago. Tune in Sunday nights from 9PM-10PM to hear for yourself!
