Bill Warren wasn’t the only only covering the 2016 Charlotte Bluegrass Music Festival last week in Michigan. Public television station WGVU sent Patrick Center to cover the festivities for the station’s Newsmakers program.
Center spoke with Wes Pettinger, who promotes the festival, and several of the performers about their fascination with bluegrass music. The show is clearly meant to introduce the style and the personalities involved to a wider audience not so familiar with the genre as our readers.
Still, you should also enjoy this roughly 30 minute presentation made for the folks in Michigan, especially for the discussions and demonstrations with popular artists like Joe Mullins and Donna Ulisse, and radio host Jerry Eicher about the ways of bluegrass.
