Bluegrass Breakdown: February & March, 1978

Mar 31, 2018

On this week's Bluegrass Breakdown: We'll be careening back to those bluegrassically rich and significant months of February and March, 1978 when, among other things:

Bassist Bill Bryson and guitarist Joe Carr join Alan Munde and Roland White in the Country Gazette; the City Limits Bluegrass Band, with Lynn Morris on the banjo, regroup as Fire on the Mountain; PBS airs the Grand Ole Opry in its entirety as part of its fundraising efforts; and Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt begin work on their "Trio" project. 

It'll be nothing bu vintage, four-decade old 'grass from the likes of Del McCoury, Mike Auldridge, Joe Meadow, Jimmie Skinner and Frank Wakefield.
