Smiles – Live from Red Barn Radio

In the course of coming back home to Kentucky, I had the opportunity to appear twice on the Red Barn Radio program: first on their eighth broadcast of An Appalachian Christmas, where I was privileged to perform with Sarah Kate Morgan, The Local Honeys, and The Sara Holroyd Singers. xProduct()Then it was a thrill to get the invitation to appear on the April 1 broadcast of Red Barn Radio with the Lexington folk duo, One Lane Bridge.

On the Air

It's a red radio week for me as I make two radio appearances. Redbud Radio This Saturday night, I visit the studio of Redbud Radio for an interview with host Cary Allen Fields. T-Bone Mathley, host of T-Bone's Prime Cuts, will be there as well. We'll be talking about the release of Picking the Faith and listening to a couple of the studio tracks. I just bet they'll try to talk me into picking a couple of tunes live as well. Being the nice guy that I am--that, and playing at the drop of a hat--I'll gladly oblige. Redbud Radio airs on WICR-FM (88.7) in Indianapolis at midnight on Saturday night / Sunday morning. You can also listen to the program any time next week by using the player on the web site for the ol' Redbud Radio.
