Mountain Heart began as an inventive, original bluegrass band back in 1998, and that inventiveness has only grown over the years. The group's 2018 release "Soul Searching" adds New Orleans jazz, soul, and more to its bluegrass roots. On Wednesday morning, November 7th, we'll share the latest "Wicked Weed Barrel-House Session" from Wicked Weed's Funkatorium. It was recorded by our Sound Engineer Sean Rubin last Friday, and the event was hosted by Martin Anderson. Stay with us all day and check out this special session at 10am.
