In this episode, we listen to an array of musical Americana selections recorded at the Savannah Music Festival between 2004 and 2008. Performers include Sam Bush, Mike Marshall, Don Stiernberg, the David Grisman Quintet, Jerry Douglas, Bob Seeley, the Bucky Pizzarelli Trio, Daniel Hope, Tony Williamson and Sebastian Knauer.</div><p> Fri, 04 Jul 2014 01:00:00 +0000 46506 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Americana Savannah Music Festival: Edgar Meyer http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-edgar-meyer <p><strong style="line-height: 1.5;">Airs Thursday, January 17 and 8:00 p.m. </strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Edgar Meyer is a bassist for modern times.
