Widespread Panic (#401H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG

Filling the footsteps of giants such as the Allman Brothers and jamband saints The Grateful Dead, 30-year road veterans Widespread Panic are, unquestionably, one of the most successful jambands of a generation. Melding southern rock, blues-rock, funk and hard rock, the band has risen to elite status among American jam bands. Having embarked on The Wood Tour, their first- ever completely acoustic shows, WP dropped in Underground. An "internet only" ticket, the Bluegrass Underground website survived 50,000 hits per minute; the show sold out in less than 30 seconds! A rare tour from a top band in a fantastically unique venue promises stellar "appointment television. "

Yonder Mountain String Band (#305H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG

One of the founders of America's jam band movement, Yonder Mountain String Band blends bluegrass, rock and countless other influences, pioneering a sound of their own. A traditional bluegrass band at first glance, YMSB created music that is genre-transcendent and attracted a large and fiercely loyal following. The Colorado-based foursome has toured over the past 11 years, playing clubs and major festivals, even opening for Barack Obama in Denver at Mile High Stadium.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Lucinda William (#406H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG

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.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

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

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.
