New Sounds of Bluegrass & Americana

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Hear banjos, dulcimers, fiddles and other instruments used in traditional American string band music, New Sounds-style on this show.  There’s music from Norwegian banjo player Stian Carstensen, hammered dulcimer player Dan Joseph, and the mandolin-guitar duo known as Prester John.  Plus, from the back wall of the New Sounds library, listen to the trio, Ellipsis (from the early 1980’s, on Flying Fish Records), who combine bluegrassy and folk instrumentation with minimalism and Indonesian elements.
