The new sound of old-timey music is on deck for this edition of New Sounds. We feature the legendary Norman Blake, a guitar and mandolin virtuoso who never strayed far from his birthplace of Chattanooga, Tennessee, although he did make this live appearance in our studio. We also spotlight the almost legendary Du-Tels, a "psychedelic acoustic folk duo" comprised of Gary Lucas and Peter Stampfel, who bring freewheeling madness and whimsy to material new and old.
