Front Porch Pickin' #1


Tonight, I start a new series of posts that will be uploaded every Saturday evening. I have been wanting to do this for some time and actually did something similar last year. The new series, Front Porch Pickin', will feature selected video/audio files that highlight Southern/Appalachian bluegrass, folk, and country music. We will also feature an occasional interview on the same subject - the culture of the South and how it involves this genre of music. Feel free to send your own suggestions for future "shows." Tonight features one of my favorite female vocalists and artists - Alison Krauss, performing with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and singing a classic Southern tune: Catfish John. The song was first recorded by Missippian Johnny Russell. Great tune with a great message. I hope you enjoy it.
