Podcast: New Accoustic, The Second Generation
Episode #15-47 | airing 11-18-15

Last week we examined New Grass music in the late 60s and early 70s. This week we move to the new generation of New Acoustic players who take their inspiration from jazz, classical and rock music. The style features interesting arrangements of new and well known tunes utilizing contemporary recording techniques and virtuosic chops. There are surprises galore on this week’s edition of the Sing Out! Radio Magazine.
