Louisville, Kentucky, based Storefront Congregation will feature on this weekend’s edition of the Best Of Bluegrass (BOB) presented by Bob Mitchell.
The band, made up of Kent Houchin – guitar/vocals; Lauren White – bass/vocals; Murrell Thixton – banjo/guitar/vocals; and Nathan Livers – mandolin/vocals, is looking to extend its fan base with this appearance on the International Bluegrass Music Museum’s Radio Bluegrass International (RBI).
Individually, the band members have long been recognized for their musical talents, and have backgrounds in orchestra, jazz, country, blues and, of course, bluegrass music.
They have two well-received albums, the latest of which Kaleidoscope, described “as well conceived and beautifully executed album of contemporary bluegrass” music, was released in September.
You can hear their studio performance on Friday from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. Central Time. It is repeated on Sunday from 3:00 to 5:00 a.m. Central Time.

People in the Owensboro area can also hear the show over the air on WKWC FM 90.3 on Sunday morning from 6:00 to 8:00 a.m. (CST).
