The Old Fashioned #62

Brett Villena
Larry and Joe

Amy and I reunite after a few weeks apart, co-hosting at a distance between Nashville and Bishop, CA for another week of traditional acoustic goodness. The Kody Norris Show kicks off the hour with a new single. Zoe & Cloyd showcase music from a new album that pays tributes to their respective music-making grandfathers. Robbie Fulks and Tim O’Brien team up for the Delmore Brothers classic “Nashville Blues” from Robbie’s new Bluegrass Vacation album. Phoebe Hunt sounds gorgeous singing one of many songs by bluegrass songwriter Murphy Hicks Henry on a new tribute album. But nothing sounds more energized, inspirational or international as Larry & Joe’s “Nuevo South Train.” The Durham, NC duo features Joe Troop of Che Appalache with his Venezuelan immigrant friend Larry Bellorín, on banjo and harp respectively. Yes, harp. It has to be heard to be believed, and this rollicking track tells the story of this cultural fusion.
