Mike and The Ranger Pod Cast Shows

5-4-14 Mike and The Ranger

Welcome back for another two hours of bluegrass with Mike and The Ranger! This week we play a few from Bryan Sutton and his new album “Into My Own”. We also find it hard to go a whole week without hearing Yonder Mountain String Band and at least one from the Steel Wheels.

New Albums


It’s called Nighthawk. What I thought to be another very good new mandolin instrumental album by Grascal’s dynamic mandolin player Danny Roberts, turns out to be even more. It’s a refreshing collection of new instrumental compositions by Danny with some vocal tunes mixed in, that feature Danny’s daughter Jaelee Roberts and his wife Andrea. Also helping out are Scott Benson of the Grascals, Tim Surrett of Balsam Range, Tony Wray of Blue Mafia, and special guests which include Ronnie McCoury, Sam Bush, Aubrey Haney, and Mike Compton.  When this album comes out, give it a listen and pick out your favorite, cause I know there’ll be one. It’s a little swing, bluegrass, blues, waltzes with some cool vocal tunes just to spice it up.  Nighthawk by Danny Roberts scheduled for release on May 20, 2014.
