It's rather ironic that many excellent blues musicians want a sound that's almost diametrically opposed to what most luthiers spend their lives trying to achieve - George Gruhn, http://www.gruhn.com

Piedmont Blues on Folkways TV program
« on: October 19, 2005, 05:16:23 PM »
This might be a NC only thing, I am not sure. There is a program coming up Monday 10/24 called Folkways on UNC-NC (one of UNC TV's cable extra channels) that will be on Piedmont Blues. My DVR is set up!

Is that the David Holt show? I haven't seen it listed up here on NY/NJ PBS stations.

Yes, it is. I found the specific info about the episode:

I sure wish the PBS stations here in the Northeast would pick this up. Not likely.

You can always watch the webcast - it is 27 minutes, via Real Player:

I believe this is actually a different show on the same subject, but thanks very much for the link!

Oops - you are indeed right.  Maybe they will digitize David Holt's show in the future...?

Cheers,

Wow - looks like nearly the whole Folkways series is up there, though "The Guitar" seems to be missing. I watched "The Banjo" a few days ago on TV and while it isn't blues exactly, it was a good show. Even "Workers In wood" which I also watched a while back features a short bit of finger picking.

This thread now points at an hour of Piedmont Blues video.

Needless-to-say, I have already missed this date. It would be great if there was a tv guide specifically for the "Blues" programming. Often, it is either a local network only or it isn't aired like the TV guides say.

Both shows are available over the web. I just watched the Folkways one the other night on the DVR. Etta Baker makes it look so effortless. The other player made it look like a lot more work and didn't sound as polished. I like the Folkways program better than the other one (more music) but they are both worth watching.
