The Old Fashioned #10

The Kody Norris Show
The Kody Norris Show

We’ve proudly featured the Po’ Ramblin’ Boys recently as an exemplar of the old bluegrass ways playing out by young artists on a modern stage, but they’re not the only band sporting flamboyant vintage stage wear and a close-knit, hard-boned bluegrass sound. And that’s why we kick show #10 off with the new single from the Kody Norris Show out of East Tennessee. They were recently named Entertainers of the Year by the IBMA trad little brother Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America. Also in the hour, deep old-time fiddling from Nashville-based Rafe Stefanini, new Mike Compton arranging Bill Monroe, and married bluegrass duos Zoe & Cloyd and Nefesh Mountain. The Steep Canyon Rangers play the most North Carolina music ever, and we hear legacy tracks from Blue Highway and Crooked Still.
