Woodsongs Old-Time Radio HourMichael Jonathan announced, "we are celebrating Kentucky Bluegrass with FOUR different groups and a young surprise guest (see the schedule page at woodsongs.com for the artist list). Also, anyone from West Liberty, Kentucky can come for free. This small Kentucky town was literally blown off the map by a tornado last week. Not only will they get free tickets, but a fine new cafe called The Lunch Box will give them a free dinner when they come to Lexington for the show. If you know any folks from West Liberty, pass the word."

The Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour tapes their shows each Monday at the historic Kentucky Theatre, 214 Main St, Lexington, Kentucky. This Monday's show will be a four band live audience broadcast taping and "musical conversation" which invites the audience to come hear, laugh, applaud with the program. Monday's program will feature:

DON RIGSBY is one of the most accomplished bluegrass musicians working in Kentucky. From remote Isonville, KY, to an international following in Bluegrassmusic, Don has remained true to his mountain roots and made his own marks as a powerful tenor and distinctive mandolin player. Don played with JD Crowe and The New South, and was a member of the award-winning Lonesome River Band. The two-time Grammy nominee and two-time SPBGMA Traditional MaleVocalist of the Year and sang on a Grammy-winning album by rocker John Fogerty. donrigsby.com

THE 23 STRING BAND hail from all around Kentucky. The band pays a fun, fuel-injected, original Americana that dangerously weaves across the lanes of modern acoustic music — windows down, accelerator to the floor, on a joyride into the unknown with one eye on the vintage sounds in the rearview mirror. It's a bluegrass attack fueled by high-octane rock-n-roll energy and triple-distilled organic roots. The guys won the prestigious band competition at RockyGrass in Lyons, CO in 2011. Their latest album is 'Catch 23.' the23stringband.com

SUGAR TREE are three wanderin' women who found their way back to the tippy-toes of the Appalachian foothills in Berea. This string trio are known for their pristine vocal harmonies, traditional and contemporary song choices and cowgirl boots.

BAWN IN THE MASH are entering their seventh year of performing their sound founded in the ancient tones of Western Kentucky. Based in Paducah, early fans watched the band go from busking Appalachian street corners to headlining the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion-- from performing on the corner of 4th and Broadway to selling out the world famous Station Inn-- and from playing local barrooms to performing in the Victorian Ballroom aboard the Delta Queen steamboat, as the band continually progresses and impresses listeners worldwide. The band has just released their 4th studio album. bawninthemash.com
