The Old Fashioned #17

Around WMOT we’ve started thinking about an important 50th anniversary that you may not have considered yet. 1972 saw the release of Will The Circle Be Unbroken, the epic 3-LP set of collaborative classic country and bluegrass made by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and a cast of Nashville greats, including Earl Scruggs and Mother Maybelle Carter. We’ll be visiting that album as part of WMOT’s coverage of this important landmark, because it was a galvanizing event that brought traditional roots music back in vogue and set the template for the Americana movement. That’s how we continue to get great new music every week, including this show’s singles from Asheville band Unspoken Tradition, Volume Five and Tina Adair. We also hear old time from Sophie Mae Wellington and Amy’s band Tune Hash. Plus the Punch Brothers’ take on the old Jimmie Rodgers number “Any Old Time.” Take the time to listen. You’ll love it.
