Dawg Gone: The Jazzier Sounds of David Grisman

Friday, September 30, 2011 ● 5-7 pm (edt)
WTJU 91.1 FM/Streaming at WTJU.net

While David "Dawg" Grisman initially made his bones in the world of folk and bluegrass, he certainly did not stay chained there for very long. Through his work with the David Grisman Quintet (and now Sextet!), he has played with jazz luminaries such as Stéphane Grappelli and Svend Asmussen, while also influencing young pups like Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. So tune in as we examine not only the jazz sounds of David Grisman, but also those who have played alongside him over these many "dawg" years.

Tune in Friday, September 30, from 5-7 pm when Sunset Road host Pete Marshall and Leftover Biscuits host Peter Jones venture from their usual folk slots to help their jazz friends raise funds for WTJU.  Rumor is they will even have a couple pairs of tickets to this year's Festy in nearby Roseland, Virginia, where the David Grisman Sextet will be performing Columbus Day Weekend (Oct 7-9).

So don't miss two hours of Dawg this Friday, September 30, from 5-7 pm (edt).  And don't forget to throw us a bone for your community station, WTJU.
