From The Bluegrass Situation (‘BGS’) and WMOT Roots Radio in Nashville, The BGS Radio Hour brings you songs and stories from the best modern roots community around. The BGS Radio Hour merges modern artists and old time traditions, bringing you roots and culture - redefined. Every week you’ll hear unique content covering the international roots music scene, ranging from traditional bluegrass to progressive folk rock, Americana, roots, and everything in between.

This week on the Bluegrass Situation Radio Hour we bring you highlights from each day of the second annual Arroyo Seco weekend, happening in Pasadena, California just a stone’s throw from BGS HQ in Los Angeles.

This week on the BGS Radio Hour we’ve got new music from The Travelin’ McCourys and Parker Millsap, a behind the scenes look at what it’s like to play deep inside a cave in the Tennessee Mountains with Brandi Carlile, and we bring you music from some of this year’s nominees for the Americana Music Awards including Margo Price, Jason Isbell, and Molly Tuttle.

This week we’ve got new music from Laura Veirs, Mipso, and Old Crow Medicine Show, plus we’re excited to announce details on a new Americana and Roots music festival happening this September in England, The Long Road Festival in Leicestershire.

This week on the BGS Radio Hour Ashley Campbell serves us a mixtape of her favorite banjo tunes from the likes of Dolly Parton, Bill Monroe & The Bluegrass Boys, Carl Jackson, Punch Brothers, Sara Jarosz and many many more.
