The Global World of Bluegrass

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This program takes an admittedly cursory listen to how bluegrass music has truly become a world music in the decades since Bill Monroe established and promoted this genre of American music in the 1940s. While the majority of the show focuses on that amazing aspect, the show begins with four selections on how bluegrass artists are stretching the music or using their deep bluegrass roots to delve into other types of global music. The final hour features a vast array of bluegrass groups found on the 2-CD set, 10 Years of the European World of Bluegrass on Strictly Country Records.
