Thursday 1/19 @ 8pm: Sam Bush – Radio John: Songs of John Hartford

Sam Bush - Radio John - Songs of John Hartford.jpg

John Hartford…Sam Bush…Two of WNCW’s absolute favorites! Did you know Bush was lifelong friends with Hartford? He frequently jammed with hero and mentor, on and off stage, going back to the early ‘70s. Did you also know Bush plays bass, guitar, and banjo? He plays every instrument on every cut but one (his band joins him on the one non-Hartford song), pouring himself and all his love for John into the performances. The liner notes include some wonderful reflections from Sam as well as musician/producer/journalist Jon Weisberger. This heartfelt tribute was released in November on Smithsonian Folkways.

Listen on Apple Music

As Music Director, Martin books our live sessions, and keeps in touch with the record labels and promoters that send us new music. When not at the station, he enjoys gardening, hiking, traveling, history, and raising his daughter on good music and more.
