Bluegrass Breakdown: New Old Time

Aug 4, 2018

On this week's Bluegrass Breakdown: It's a type of music that's often humorously described as being better than it sounds, which actually comes from Mark Twain describing Wagner's operas. More metaphisically, it's a particular brand of music that, among many other things, helps give the listener a sense of security by harkening back to memories of home, early childhood, religious experiences, finding a place in the community, courting, working and death. 

We'll be immersing ourselves in the power of new old time music with the likes of Victor Furtado, Frank Lee & Ellie Burbrink, the Turf Dwellers and Mother's Boys.
