Bluegrass Etcetera with Frank Hoppe
Sundays 6am - 8am (Pacific Time)
From the misty Banks of the Ohio to the Blue Moon of Kentucky—where bluegrass was born—Bluegrass, Etc. continues the grand tradition. Longtime host Frank Hoppe features traditional bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, old-time and early country music to move your heart and your feet. Legendary artists, from the early stars of country music like Hoyt Ming & His Pep Steppers and the Carter Family to contemporary performers like Ralph Stanley, Alison Krauss and Ricky Skaggs, are broadcast directly to you, commercial-free.
You can expect to hear something new to your ears plus unexplored facets of this great American music each and every week. Whether it’s a 90-year-old classic or a newfound treasure, Bluegrass Etc. has a few surprises for even the most diehard music lover.
Frank is an accomplished musician and plays the fiddle, along with a little guitar, cello, and mandolin. He’s also an avid dancer, running his own monthly Contra Dance event for many years, and has, in years past, organized the fiddling and dancing segments of the California Traditional Music Society’s Summer Solstice Festival, as well as the dance stage at the Topanga Canyon Banjo & Fiddle Contest. He has served on the CTMS board and is an active member of the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Bluegrass Association of Southern California.
