Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 26 October 2008

It was an absolute pleasure to have Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile live in studio today with us. We talked about their new CD of original compositions out on the Nonesuch label, and they played three pieces live. (The timbre of my questions had Chris jokingly -- I think -- refer to WKCR as "music geek radio" on the way out the door.)

We also played a few selections from Kenny and Amanda Smith's new CD, including the lead track "Changing," co-written by Buddy Woodward and Brandi Hart from the Dixie Bee-Liners with Tim Stafford. Moonshine Show intern Logan took us through three tracks from the new Ralph Stanley compilation of clawhammer banjo tunes.
