The Old Fashioned #43

Cory Walker is a widely traveled and appreciated banjo player, who I’ve been seeing a lot lately playing with East Nash Grass at Dee’s, our clubhouse in Madison TN. Of course his resume is much longer than that, including tours and sessions with Ricky Skaggs, Sierra Hull, Jim Lauderdale, Mountain Heart, and more. We open this week’s show with a new single from Cory, because he’s been taken in by Mountain Fever Records and there’s an album in the works. “Far Away Again” was written by Cory’s brother Jarrod with Christian Ward and sung by Tim O’Brien. Bodes well for the future. Also this hour, which I’m hosting alone while Amy traveled in Mexico, includes a new one from Tina Adair, a delicious recent track from AJ Lee & Blue Summit and classics from Bill Monroe and Norman Blake.
