We’ll hear musical tributes aplenty on this New Sounds program, many of them by guitarists heaping their thanks to other artists. We’ll hear notes of appreciation from Michael Hedges to Pierre Bensusan, from Bill Frisell to Boubacar Traoré, from trumpeter Dave Douglas to Bill Frisell, and a little exchange between Stefan Grossman and John Fahey. Plus, tributes to Angelique Kidjo, Leo Kottke, and Philip Glass, and a few others.

Listen to the blues, reinvented, for this New Sounds program. Hear chamber folk by Last Forever, some of America's oldest soul music in settings that combine spinet, harmonium, hammer dulcimer, violin, guitar, and banjo. Also, there are performances of classic blues by contemporary acts like North Carolina’s the Backsliders, New Orleans blues artist Chris Thomas King and others.
