The Health & Happiness Hour – Sara Grey in Session and conversation 16 April 2014
This weeks we welcome Folk Royalty in Banjo playing songstress, story teller and musicologist Sara Grey. My guest this week is a direct line to the roots of the music and deep lover and top exponent of the flailing style of Appalachian banjo. An expert on the songlines that took our Highland tradition to the Americas, now she spends her time taking that music and the stories back home to the source and teaching students on both sides of the Atlantic divide the archaic nature of our music.
In the first half of the show I play the music of Vanity Fare, (as The Notorious Byrd Brothers), Redpine Timber Company, The New Madrids, Roberto Cassani and the Tickety-two, The David Latto Band and Dave Fleming, looking forward to the big day in Perth Americana Cavalcade
