Piedmont Blues: A Summation
Episode date - June 24, 2016
This will be our final show dedicated to the music of the Piedmont, and it kind of feels like the end of a vacation.
There was so much to discover and learn in these segments, and the music has been both joyous and entertaining. It amazes me how the Piedmont region’s music has managed to fly below the radar for so many years. I hope that these shows, in some small way, conveyed the timeless excellence and enormous influence that this region had on the subsequent development of popular music.
