Show Notes

Centrum’s musical archive tenders some bluegrass music this week, featuring Laurie Lewis and the Right Hands from 2003, as well as three disciples of Bill Monroe – Byron Berline, Blaine Sprouse, and Peter Rowan.

 

Also appearing – Tom Rozum, Craig Smith, Scott Huffman (singing a Mark Graham song), Rich Levine, Eric Thompson, Craig Korth, Nancy Katz, and Patrick Sauber playing some superb banjo.

 

Here’s a great story, in Blaine Sprouse’s own words, about how he became Kenny Baker’s friend:

This looks like Peter Rowan to me:

50+ years later, Peter reprises Uncle Pen in today’s show.

 

Most Crackin the Vault shows will be available on the Centrum podcast channel:

Thanks for listening, have fun!
