Gangstagrass – Where Hip-Hop meets Hillbilly

I chat with a picker and an MC from one of the most original bands on the scene today. Rapper R-SON and guitar picker/producer Rench talk about their unique fusion of bluegrass and hip-hop as they get ready to bring Gangstagrass to Retro Live for a show unlike anything the North Country has seen before.

The Squirrel Nut Zippers Holiday Caravan Comes to Plattsburgh

Back in the 90's, The Squirrel Nut Zippers helped create a new wave of swing-inspired, New Orleans magic onto the national airwaves, in the meantime going platinum as they sold millions of albums. After releasing Beasts of Burgundy, their first album in 17 years, the Zippers aren't just back - they're bigger and better than ever. I talk with Jimbo Mathus as the band prepares to kickoff their Holiday Caravan tour in Plattsburgh's Strand Center Theatre this week.
