Folk Oasis Episode December 21, 2011

Broadcast on 21-Dec-2011

8:00pm - 10:00pm

Happy holidays! Many vintage tunes from the country end of the Oasis this beginning-of-solstice night (Bob Wills, Dale Watson, Buck Owens). Also musical tribute to two important roots music figures who passed away this week: Cesaria Evora and Warren Hellman (founder of Not Strictly Bluegrass Festival). As Dickens said: "It's at Christmas time that Want is most keenly felt", so please remember that this season. Warmest wishes to all, and see you in 2012!

joyeux noel,
