David Grisman Quintet

Airs Thursday, July 3 at 8 p.m. 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. 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.

Savannah Music Festival: Edgar Meyer

Airs Thursday, January 17 and 8:00 p.m. Edgar Meyer is a bassist for modern times. Whether he's writing a bass concerto, performing with Yo-Yo Ma, teaching at the Royal Academy of Music, or playing bluegrass with his pals in Nashville, his virtuosity and original compositions have put him in a class by himself. In 2006, the Savannah Music Festival invited Meyer to perform a program of his original compositions with multi-instrumentalists Sam Bush and Mike Marshall, along with violinist and SMF Associate Artistic Director Daniel Hope. While his work can be complex to rehearse and play, it is always engaging and optimistic to hear.
