One of the first, one of the best. Dan Crary and Beppe Gambetta, flatpickers-extraordinaire, pushing the boundaries of bluegrass and acoustic music. Dan and Beppe are longtime stars at the Walnut Valley Festival – going on this weekend! We recorded them in St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in McPherson.
This week New Settlers' celebrates all things Irish with jigs, reels and ballads. Through the years, several Celtic groups have performed in the area and we’ll sample from some of the best – including Cherish the Ladies, Cathie Ryan and her band and Grace Griffith. Grab a pint and join the party.
It's another from the Best of the Best series: Zoe Lewis and her Rubber Band performing at the Old Settlers Inn. Zoe plays everything from traditional folk tunes, ballads, world beat and also vaudeville. Zoe even sings a song about pie! Does it get any better?
Blues, roots-rock with a hard-to-fine element that says “southern.” Paul's style is gritty as it is graceful. And he is incredibly funny! Paul Thorn is a consummate storyteller as you will hear in his Old Setters Inn performance. If you can't wait...
