Remembering Kenny Baker

kennybaker4Well start the program with a tribute to one of the greatest fiddlers to ever hold a bow, Mr. Kenny Baker. Several songs recorded during his 25-year stint as a member of Bill Monroes Bluegrass Boys as well as a selection or two from his solo releases will help us mark the sad occasion of his passing.

Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass, Karl Shifletts Big Country Show, and Indianas own Cornfields & Crossroads will be featured at Bluegrass Fever in Sheridan on July 16th. Well hear at least one song from these top notch acts, too.

The songwriting of Richard Thompson is the focus when we spin covers of his music from Alison Krauss & Union Station, The Nashville Bluegrass Band, and Del McCoury. Listener requests from Alicia Nugent and Larry Sparks will be part of the deal as well!

If you’re in Indianapolis, tune in to 88.7 on your FM dial at 9PM EASTERN during “Friday Night Folk” programming on WICR.
