New Acoustic Music- The Undead

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, May 20, 1988

The Turtle Island String Quartet's concert performance on last week's program was one of the best examples of a branch of new music known simple as "New Acoustic Music." It combines American bluegrass, jazz, and folk styles with elements of classical or ethnic music. This program presents some of the other leading practitioners of the form, including several live performances by guitarist Peppino d'Agostino of new works.

You are absolutely correct. It would seem that our dated archives have been mis-labeled, causing an overwrite of the actual "New Acoustic Music" show. Thank you for catching this error. We'll retrieve the correct file and post by Wednesday at noon.

Whoops... This is not "New Acoustic Music" as 'advertised,' but a Merkin Hall show with Relache. Just thought you'd like to know.
