The Hillbenders

hillbendersIts Labor Day weekend and there are a TON of great choices for places to see us some live bluegrass music this weekend. Check our Events page on the site here for information. And while youre there, youll see we have the second installment of the Bill Monroe Birthday Bash coming up and The Hillbenders are the featured band, w/ special guests The White Lightning Boys on the bill as well!

Plenty of Bill Monroe in the program this week, of course. Well start things off with the instrumental Watermelon Hangin On The Vine, which opened Bill Monroe & The Bluegrass Boys performances for years, and then spin a couple favorites recorded live.

One from Spring Creeks new CD, The Seldom Scene, IIIrd Tyme Out, Lonesome River Band, and gospel numbers from Dave Evans, Lost & Found, and The Stanley Brothers are just a few of the songs we have lined-up for a listen.

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

Not in Indy? Not a problem! The show will be posted here on the site later this week and remains on our player for 7 days.
