Airs Thursday, August 7 at 8 p.m. Nearly a quarter of a century ago, banjo master Bela Fleck formed a band that drew on bluegrass, jazz, blues and rock, combining the talents of four unique musicians that play acoustic and electric instruments. They call themselves the Flecktones, 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 2012 SMF performance by the original lineup of the Flecktones, including pianist and harmonica player Howard Levy.

Airs Sunday, May 18 at 6 p.m. I used to say that Bob Wills was the Elvis Presley of Western Swing. He was as charismatic a performer as ever stood on stage according to the people who have reported to me and by looking at his films." - Ray Benson (Asleep at the Wheel). Imagine walking into a dance hall on a dusty Texas highway back in 1946. The room is packed wall to wall, and on the bandstand is a smiling, hollering fiddler leading 22 musicians who are working the dancers into a frenzy with hit after hit.
