RadioIO adds newgrass stream

RadioIOInternet streaming audio service RadioIO is doubling their channel offerings this month, going from 28 to 60 discrete streams by February 1. Among the new channels is a Newgrass stream to feature acoustic music a bit too edgy for their Bluegrass stream.

RadioIO’s bluegrass stream leans toward traditional bluegrass with occasional excursions into more modern music, while the newgrass stream focuses specifically on bluegrass-inflected sounds from artists like Old Crow Medicine Show, Béla Fleck, David Grisman, Leftover Salmon, King Wilkie, Crooked Still and other similar artists.

Listeners have the choice of free, ad-supported music or for $4.95/month, they can stream the channels without commercial interruptions.
