String Band Music http://redriverradio.org en Savannah Music Festival: Punch Brothers 2011 - Part Two http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-punch-brothers-2011-part-two <p><strong>Airs Thursday, January 10 at 8:00 p.m.&nbsp;</strong>The second episode of Punch Brothers music from their 2011 appearance in Savannah.&nbsp;The forward movement of contemporary American stringband music has always been fueled by a tradition that existed outside the classroom setting. When a young person attempts to pursue an American style such as bluegrass, Cajun, country or blues, the earliest method of learning often begins with imitating music from recordings. Later on, participation in jam sessions, lessons with a mentor, and getting connected with better players is the easiest route toward figuring out how to play your instrument. In this episode we listen to a group of mostly non-formally trained string players that has developed a wholly original sound based on their collective approach to music making.
