Danny Paisley at DCBU

Here is David Morris’ interview with Danny and Ryan Paisley at the DC Bluegrass Festival this past weekend. Once again, thanks to Eric Tapp for technical assistance. The video is presented in B&W owing to the poor lighting in the hotel pool area where we had to shoot. 


On another Paisley-related note, Danny and Ryan will be on the air Thursday morning (2/28) with Katy Daley at 9:00 a.m (EST)  on WAMU’s Buegrass Country. Katy tells us that the father-and-son duo will play a few mandolin/guitar numbers, and talk about their new CD, Road Into Town.

She also mentioned that Ryan will be the third generation of Paisleys to perform on the station.

“Bob first brought a young Danny in to play on the Gary Henderson show. Danny has played for WAMU’s Bluegrass Country during remote broadcasts from IBMA in Nashville. As bluegrass on WAMU enters its 46th year, we’re happy to welcome the Paisleys to our microphones.”

Catch Katy, Danny and Ryan on WAMU via their online stream, and at 105.5 FM or HD radio 88.5-2 in the DC Metro market.
