Sprouts: Coulee Creek

Mon May 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In the summer of 2020, a group of musicians met in an open-air pavilion in a small town along the banks of the Mississippi. The musicians represented a variety of musical influences and training in “jazz, blues, country, classical,and bluegrass” that would all come together over a period of five months. They brought in a poet to write and record four original poems for the project, providing new connections for the old-time music and the lyrics of two bluegrass pioneers, Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard.

In conjunction with Pacifica, WORT presents the latest episode of Sprouts: Radio from the Grassroots. You’ll hear cuts from Coulee Creek’s album Matriarch: Song and Verse, which is dedicated to Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard. You’ll hear recordings of Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard at the San Diego Folk Festival in 1974. And you’ll background history from the musicians themselves, as well as WORT’s own Bill and Bobby Malone, hosts of Back to the Country on Wednesday morning.

This program was mixed and presented by Sprouts, a weekly collaborative program that showcases local stories produced by community radio stations and grassroots media groups around the world. The program is coordinated and distributed by Pacifica Radio and offered free to all radio stations. You can listen to this episode of Sprouts, here.
