The new Blue Ridge Music Center is the subject of this 1.5 hour episode. I recently held an interview with Joe Wilson and Debbie Robinson of this fantastic mountain music show case when my band, the Oriskany Strings, and another nearby band, the Craig County Boys, played there. The Blue Ridge Music Center is a part of The Ridge Parkway National Park and is located at Mile Post 213 near Galax, Virginia and Mt. Airy, North Carolina. Joe Wilson is a magical person and I know you will enjoy listening to this educational interview about the center and mountain music. The interview is interleaved with the music of the three bands that played at the center the evening of August 19, 2006.

The Itinerant Band is featured in this episode. This band plays music from the 18th century and uses instruments seldom heard or seen. I bought their Jefferson and Liberty album while attending a reenactment of the 1757 battle between French and British forces at Fort Ticonderoga in upper state New York. This is another of my history of old time and bluegrass music episodes and I think you will like it. You can learn more about the band at www.itinerantband.com. You can learn more about Fort Ticonderoga at www.fort-ticonderoga.org.

The Athy (Ireland) Bluegrass Festival 2006 is the subject of this episode. I recently learned that bluegrass music is alive and well in Europe, so I contacted Tony O Brien (songwriter, vocalist and musician) who manages this festival. Tony sent me two CDs loaded with music from the festival and I was blown away with the quality of the bluegrass and old time music played at the festival. The Bluegrass Patriots from Fort Collins, Colorado was the first headline band and the No. 1 European Bluegrass Band, 4 Wheel Drive, was the second headline band. There are plenty of great Irish bluegrass and old time bands to listen to and some play original music they wrote.

The state of West Virginia was a part of the state of Virginia prior to the American Civil War. So no wonder oldtime and bluegrass music is as alive in West Virginia as it is in the mountain regions of Virgina. In this episode you'll visit the Vanadalia, a festival hosted by the Division of Culture and History, located in the state capital of Charleston, West Virgina. Listen in to some fantastic oldtime music from the "mountain" state. Its going on right now, this Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28 just as it has been for the last 30 years.
