There will be a special bluegrass performance on this Friday’s (5/11) edition of The Blue Plate Special, at noon on WDVX. The show will feature a live (in-studio) set with Butch Baldassari (mandolin), Barbara Lamb (fiddle), Kathy Chiavola (guitar/vocal) and Mike Bub (bass).
While this bunch does not tour together regularly, they will occasionally do shows as The Nashville All-Stars, and have an appearance scheduled this weekend at the Earhart Music Festival in Bristol, TN.
Butch said that their show will include mostly standard bluegrass songs and fiddle tunes, and with the high level of musicianship in this group, you can expect it to be a strong set.
WDVX broadcasts at 89.9 FM from Knoxville, TN and the station’s feed is streamed live online. There are no audio archives, so be sure to listen in on Friday, eastern US time, from noon to 1:00 p.m.
