WWB covers Nashville flood

Terry Poirier contacted us last night with news about his show this evening (May 10) on World Wide Bluegrass. He will be dedicating this edition of Kickin’ Canadian Grass to music and discussion following the horrible flooding in Nashville and other sections of middle Tennessee of late.

The show airs online from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (EDT) at www.worldwidebluegrass.com, and outside of an interview with Lou Reid during the first hour, all of the program will be flood-related.

“We will feature music all about flooding and such disasters in wake of the Nashville fiasco from this past weekend. In hour two, I’ll be talking with Melonie Cannon covering most of the events that happened in Nashville last weekend. I’ve seen posts everywhere about the national media brushing the topic and moving on….This is Nashville….with TV stations, music venues, musicians producers and bluegrass folks in trouble! We need to help out any way we can.

I hope this show will bring that out and folks from all around the world will have a chance to help out.”

If you can spare a few dollars for the relief and rebuilding efforts, there are a number of reputable organizations who are accepting donations. Here are just a few:
