The High 48s

Fiddler Eric Christopher and banjo player Anthony Ihrig of this Minnesota bluegrass 5-piece joined us in the studio on March 31, 2017. We talked about the band's non-traditional approach to playing traditional bluegrass; for example, their new album, "Daddy was a Bankrobber," due out June 16th, takes its name from a Clash tune they cover.  The band was in town to play at their first Cabin Fever Festival, sponsored by the Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-time Music Association.
