Martha Spencer will appear live on “This Old Porch” at 4pm November 18th, in support of her new self titled CD. The delightfully charming and talented daughter of musicians Thornton and Emily Spencer, Martha grew up performing and recording with Southwest Virginia’s Whitetop Mountain Band. Originally formed in the ‘40s by uncle and legendary fiddler Albert Hash, Thornton Spencer’s fiddle playing and Emily Spencer’s sweet vocals and banjo artistry carried the tradition forward for their children. Thornton’s passing last year set the stage for Martha to step forward in the family tradition. Skilled on multiple instruments, her sweet vocals shine on original songwriting and old favorites too. Join Carol Rifkin for a special session on THIS OLD PORCH, Sundays from 3pm 'til 6pm.
