Bluegrass http://redriverradio.org en Savannah Music Festival: Russell Moore & III Tyme Out http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-russell-moore-iii-tyme-out <div><strong>Airs Thursday, October 10 at 8 p.m.&nbsp;</strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">When immigrants from Great Britain and Ireland arrived in the Appalachian region of the United States in the </span>18th<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> century, they brought with them the musical traditions of their&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">homelands. These traditions were extended, refined and combined into a variety of American roots music styles, including a distinct musical form called bluegrass.

But when the&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Del </span>McCoury<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Band decided to make a recording and follow it up with a national tour, the result was the essence of the term "Americana". In this&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">episode, we listen to a seamless blend of soul-lifting traditional harmonies as the high and lonesome sound of the Appalachians comes together with the hot and lively jazz of New Orleans.&nbsp;</span></div><p> Fri, 09 Aug 2013 01:00:00 +0000 31622 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Preservation Hall Jazz Band with the Del McCoury Band Live Savannah Music Festival: Edgar Meyer & Mike Marshall http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-edgar-meyer-mike-marshall <p><strong>Airs Thursday, July 11 at 8 p.m.</strong> Throughout a lifetime of performing and composing, Edgar Meyer has turned the double bass into a modern virtuoso instrument that is equally at home in classical music and in the American vernacular. Mandolin master Mike Marshall has been blending genres in acoustic music for more than 30 years, performing and recording with players in bluegrass, classical, jazz and Brazilian music - so it's no surprise that Marshall and Meyer have developed a fully realized concept of the mandolin/bass duo, presenting a repertoire that spans the globe. Tune in for highlights from their 2012 performance in the Charles H. Morris Center at the 2012 Savannah Music Festival.

Fans of these styles have always known they can count on a superb blend of them when listening to Tim O'Brien, who has spent the last three decades expanding the possibilities of acoustic music. In 2011, Tim O'Brien brought an all-star quartet to the Savannah Music Festival, featuring Bryan Sutton on guitar, Stuart Duncan on fiddle and Mike Bub on bass. Tune in to hear excerpts from their three exceptional 2011 sets in Savannah. Fri, 14 Jun 2013 01:00:00 +0000 28824 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: The Tim O'Brien Band
