Homespun

Sundays at 4pm

'Homespun' is a program that focuses on the "traditional" side of music, although that can stretch from very old 78 rpm reissues to the contemporary music of today. Host Tom Ball says there are only two kinds of music: good music and bad music, and he strives to focus on the good each week!

This week on Homespun we explored new music from Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn, The Lonesome River Band, and Special Consensus. We also slipped back to the 20's and 30's with Banjo Ikey, The Grinnell Giggers plus Walter Jacobs and Lonnie Carter; and we heard a couple classics from Patty Larkin and Michigan's own Steppin' in it.
