Local Author Phil James on Sunset Road 2/25/11

Tune in to Sunset Road on WTJU friday 2/25 at 5pm when i'll be having a conversation with local author and journalist Phil James. Phil writes a column for the Crozet Gazette entitled Secrets of the Blue Ridge and also has a book out with the same title. We'll be talking particularly about 1950's era folk musician Paul Clayton, his time living in Charlottesville and western Albemarle County, his connection to local ballad singer Mary Bird McAllister, and some of the many musicians he associated with during his time in this area, including Bill Clifton, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Pink Anderson. Expect some fascinating stories!
