Hard-core bluegrass from Melvin Goins and Windy Mountain this week and from the Patuxent Partners. Hot banjo playing from Switzerland (through North Carolina) by Jens Kruger, and a new release from Darin and Brooke Aldridge. Also a performance by the Steep Canyon Rangers, and some old-time classics from String Theory. All in all, a good week.
