MacPhail Hour: Bluegrass and Appalachian Music

Join us as we trace the evolution of bluegrass music from its beginnings as Scotch-Irish folk tunes to the sounds of Bill Monroe. Discover how the geography and culture of Appalachia shaped the development of a unique sound and how the music of Americana continues to influence modern musicians such as Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, Chris Thiele and others.
