We got a note today from Carol Beaugard alerting us to the fact that she will have Greensky Bluegrass live on her Lonesome Pine RFD radio program on Friday morning (7/30). The show airs from 9:00 a.m. to noon in the new York City metro market on WFDU-FM, 89.1, and via online streaming at www.wfdu.fm.
Carol fills in a few details…
“Band members Anders Beck (dobro), Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), Dave Bruzza (guitar), Mike Devol (upright bass) and Paul Hoffman (mandolin) will play an explosive hour of their signature mix of traditional/jam band rock influenced Americana sounds.
Greensky Bluegrass is touring in support of their recently released fourth album, Five Interstates, which was produced by Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth. The album features twelve original tracks and one traditional bluegrass song (a nod to the deceased King of Bluegrass, Jimmy Martin) and showcases the band’s songwriting and playing talents. Since winning the 2006 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest, Greensky has played over 170 shows a year. Recent highlights include sharing the stage with musical heroes, such as Tony Rice and Peter Rowan, Sam Bush, Yonder Mountain String Band and Railroad Earth.”
Greensky will perform live starting at 11:00 a.m. Should you miss the show live, it will be available in the WFDU archives after the program airs.
