New Found Road on WDVX

New Found Road - JR Williams, Tim Shelton, Randy Barnes, Rob BakerBlue Plate Special on WDVX in Knoxville will offer a live set from New Found Road today (8/31) at noon. It will be a fine chance to catch them with their newest member, Joe Bohoor, on mandolin.

New Found Road is led by singer and songwriter Tim Shelton on guitar with Randy Barnes on bass and Jr. Willaims on banjo, along with Booher on mandolin.

Singer/songwriter Jennifer Brantley will also appear on the show.

As we’ve mentioned before when bluegrass acts have appeared, WDVX broadcasts from Knoxville, TN at 89.9 FM, and listeners worldwide can catch the show via live streaming from the WDVX web site. The station does not archive these live shows, so be sure to tune in when it airs later today at noon.

Next Thursday (9/6), Blue Plate Special will feature a live performance from Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver.

UPDATE 5:30 p.m.: Thanks to eagle-eyed commenter Jerry Greer for catching an error in this post, now corrected. As it now shows, Joe Bohoor is playing mandolin with the band, and Jr. Williams is still on banjo.

    Yes, Joe Booher is an awesome mandolin player from the Tri-cities, TN area. He did replace Rob Baker on mandolin not banjo.
