David Grisman Folk Jazz Trio (#405H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Grisman is absolutely a founder of newgrass and new acoustic music. Nicknamed "Dawg" by his close collaborator, Jerry Garcia, Grisman has crafted a mixture of bluegrass-centered Django Reinhardt/ Stephane Grappelli jazz affectionately known by decades of avid fans as "Dawg Music." Co-founder of the seminal neo-traditionalist band Old and in the Way, and now leading his jazz trio, Grisman is a permanent and beloved feature on the landscape of American neo-traditional culture.

Lucinda Williams (#406H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Winner of Grammys for Best Country Song and Best Contemporary Folk Album and an enormous presence in the diversified world of deep, literary songwriters, Williams is a groundbreaking, truly unapologetic architect of that simmered blend of country, blues, folk, off-the-shoulder rock 'n' roll that has been born as the Americana genre. Mainstream Nashville knows her as the writer of Mary Chapin Carpenter's hit "Passionate Kisses," but this highly acclaimed, independent songsmith can - and will - do it all ... her way.

The Gibson Brothers (#407H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

For their amazing harmonies and whip-crack musicianship, this band claimed the International Bluegrass Music Association's 2013 Entertainer of the Year, Vocal Group, and Song. To top it off, brother Eric was named Songwriter of the Year. The previous year the brothers won the IBMA Entertainer of the Year Award, and the year before that won the prestigious 2011 IBMA Album of the Year Award and Vocal Group of the Year. These seasoned pros' accolades barely do justice to the bluegrass sound that is all their own.
