Justin Hiltner and Jon Weisberger have a new gospel bluegrass album.
Justin Hiltner and Jon Weisberger have a new gospel bluegrass album.

You’ll learn a bit about Round Peak fiddling in this episode, which we produced on the eve of the Mt. Airy, NC Bluegrass and Old Time Fiddlers Convention in the region where the style comes from. Amy suggested tunes by Tommy Jarrell, Benton Flippen, The Alum Ridge Boys with Ashlee and the New Ballard Bogtrotters. (Again with those great old time band names.) Craig’s opening bluegrass set kicks off with brand new music by friends and collaborators Justin Hiltner and Jon Weisberger, because they’ve just released an album of inclusive bluegrass gospel. Chris Jones celebrates his sixth number one bluegrass hit from the same album. Aaron Burdett from western NC offers his new single. And we throw back with Harry Choates and the perfect duo of Peter Rowan and Tony Rice.
