Hi, this is Blair Larsen, host of Fresh Folk. It’s a night of new releases in bluegrass music this week, as I featured the 17th album from the immensely talented Kathy Kallick, as well as the latest from the Howlin Brothers. I’ll also play tracks from new albums by the Banjo Babes, Dailey and Vincent, and the SteelDrivers, among other talented artists. Tune in and listen this Saturday at 8pm to Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio.
