Playlist: The Moonshine Show - 24 January 2009

Our first Moonshine Show after a two-week break for the Roy Haynes Festival featured a mix of bluegrass, gospel and old-time material and an appearance by Brooklyn-based Kings County Strings (a band named after an instrument shop). (I'll put some photos up here soon, so check back!) They play tomorrow night at 7:00 at the Parkside Lounge.

Instead of going into the Tennesse Border Show at noon, we turned things over to DJ Jazzvan and the rest of the Som do Brasil crew for the annual Antonio Carlos Jobim broadcast. The music runs until midnight tonight, and the musical team is live-blogging the broadcast here.
