Since 2003, the Kluane Mountain Bluegrass Festival has presented amazing music from the
finest artists in bluegrass such as James King, Michael Cleveland and Claire Lynch – and for the first time, this year JAM Live! recorded some of the fantastic performances for this radio show.
As in most musical genres, the bluegrass sound is coloured by the musicians’ personal life and their lives as professional musicians. We thought you would be interested in exploring with us some of this background.
So, who better than past producer of the bluegrass festival Steve Gedrose, to get together for a chat, with members of each of the five bands JAM Live! is featuring from this years festival. In this episode Steve is talking to the six members of Flatt Lonesome from Florida. This fun young band that is taking the bluegrass world by storm with a new and fresh approach to Bluegrass music while staying true to their traditional essence. The sextet consists of brother and sisters Buddy, Charli and Kelsi, and their friends Dominic, Michael and Paul (who is married to Kelsi).
