Tonight on Radio Heartland on Minnesota Public Radio News Stations, we'll hear the latest new direction from Chris Silver and his band with the release of their disc "Everything Can Wait".
Chris was part of the legendary local bluegrass band "Stoney Lonesome" for five years. Since then, he has been around the globe for club appearances and festivals in Japan, Austria, Germany and Mexico, along with lots of domestic touring to compliment his restless musical personality. "Bluegrass" only begins to describe what Chris Silver does. He and his band will join me in the studio for the first hour.
In hour two, I'll talk with autoharp master Bryan Bowers.
Bryan will turn 70 this year, but his memory of the first time he heard an autoharp play is still fresh and inspirational. We'll talk about hard work, muscular forearms and bad driving habits while Bryan plays and sings some original songs tonight on Radio Heartland.
This program will be repeated on radioheartland.org and on digital radio in the Twin Cities (91.1 HD2) on Sunday at noon and Monday evening at 6.
