On this episode of SP Radio we talk to Drew Phillips, mandolin player for Big Bluestem Band, and Uncle John (aka John Coleman), the host of WEFT’s weekly bluegrass show Old-Time Country Music for New Old-Timers. We discuss the current local string band music scene and the history of local bands. Plus, we play songs from each band performing at the Iron Post this Sunday.
