Roland White on Fretboard Journal talk radio

The Fretboard Journal, Spring 2009Fretboard Journal magazine’s online talk radio show last week featured a lengthy interview with Roland White.

They talk about both he and brother Clarence’s music careers and about the new Clarence White instructional book/CD package that Roland has recently published.

Clarence and Roland White are also the subject of an in-depth feature in the current (Spring ’09) issue of the magazine. Written by music journalist Geoffrey Himes, the article includes some of the same stories Roland discusses in this online interview, as well as a wealth of archival photographs.

Longtime fans of the White brothers will have heard some of these stories about how Roland and Clarence discovered bluegrass music living in Maine in the 1950s, but many new fans may not be familiar with them. Roland tells them so lovingly and in such detail…

It’s well worth the time to give this hour-long discussion a listen.
