They call themselves the </span>Flecktones<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, and the dexterity they use to make their instruments roar, and the obvious joy that they share in doing so, explains the group's longevity and their loyal fan base. Tune in for part one of a&nbsp;</span>SMF<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> performance by the original lineup of the </span>Flecktones<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, including pianist and harmonica player Howard Levy.&nbsp;</span></div><p> Fri, 01 Aug 2014 01:00:00 +0000 47734 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Bela Fleck & the Flecktones Part One Savannah Music Festival: Americana http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-americana-1 <div><strong>Airs Thursday, July 3 at 8 p.m.</strong> In music, the term "Americana" generally refers to a subset of American music that is perhaps best defined as "classic" American music, ranging in style from roots-based bluegrass to alternative country, gospel, blues, zydeco, jazz and other native forms.

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: Jerry Douglas Band http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-jerry-douglas-band <div><strong>Airs Thursday, June 19 at 8 p.m.&nbsp;</strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Jerry Douglas has received thirteen Grammy Awards, won the Country Music Association's "Musician of the Year" award three times, been awarded a National Heritage Fellowship by the National Endowment for the Arts, and was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011 by the Americana Music Association.

Such was the case for Woody Platt, Mike </span>Guggino<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Graham Sharp and Charles Humphrey, who began playing music together in 1999 while studying at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Fourteen years later and with the addition of one more musician, the five members of the Steep Canyon Rangers have become known as one of the finest bluegrass ensembles in our time.&nbsp;</span></div><p> Fri, 09 May 2014 01:00:00 +0000 43831 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Steep Canyon Rangers
