Last night I had the opportunity to guest on the Kentucky radio show Red Barn Radio. Now in their sixth season of broadcasting, Red Barn has gained quite a listenership.

Red Barn RadioThe program is aired in several states, and Canada, and can be listened to on the internet. The programs are recorded at Arts Place in downtown Lexington and are open to the public.Me & Robin

I met the host of the show, Brad Becker, at the Fraley Festival this past fall and he invited me to come to Lexington to do a show. Naturally, I was very excited to be on the program. Each week the Red Barn crew systematically transforms the 100 year-old gymnasium into the Red Barn Radio studio. The nostalgic atmosphere and the warm welcome I received made me feel right at home. Despite the snowyRed Barn Stage weather, half a dozen dedicated traditional music fans came out to watch the live performance.

Robin Kessinger graciously gave up his day to join me for the show. I’m always honored to get to perform with Robin. We played twenty tunes interspersed with two fifteen minute interview segments with myself, Robin, Mom, Dad, and my biggest fan, Grandpa. All this material will then be edited by masterAdam & Robin Pickin engineer Ed Commons into an hour long radio program that will air in about four weeks. I really appreciate Red Barn’s mission of promoting bluegrass, traditional music, and musicians like me. Keep up the good work guys!

Check back soon for more information on when and where you can listen to the program. If you aren’t already, sign up to receive my e-mail newsletter to make sure to don’t miss it.The Red Barn Crew
