Roland White on WAMU

The Essential Clarence WhiteRoland White will join Katy Daley this morning (7/14) on WAMU’s Bluegrass Country to celebrate the music of his late brother, Clarence White.

Tomorrow (July 15) will mark the 36th anniversary of the day when Clarence was killed by a drunk driver, cutting short the budding career of a true guitar innovator, not to mention robbing his family and friends of his companionship.

Roland will share stories from their early days with The Kentucky Colonels, and Katy will offer up some of their music. They will also discuss the book he has recently published, The Essential Clarence White, which includes transcriptions for 14 songs he recorded in 1962.

Tune in online at 9:00 a.m. at to hear the show.
