I’ve been Risin’ and Shinin’ on Saturday mornings since XX. Playing bluegrass music for three hours each week is a thrill for me. I have loved meeting all the listeners and I now have folks from across the sea writing and listening each week, as well as the listeners in beautiful East Tennessee and surrounding states. I love getting e mails and hearing each person’s bluegrass favorites. And one devoted listener has even named their new dog after me….WHAT A RIDE it’s been!
I look forward to the upcoming year and the new music and shows. I try each week to offer a varied show that will pay respect for the first generation bluegrass pioneers, as well as encompass the new sounds of present musicians. I love eating, breathing, sleeping, talking about and playing bluegrass music! BLUEGRASS RULES is my basic philosophy of life.
