Acoustic Highway: Black Opry Tour

Acoustic Highway 1200x675

On this week’s Acoustic Highway, we continue our feature of African American Artists who are helping to endure and redefine the genre. We’ll hear from Boston based Vance Gilbert and his wonderful 2015 Nearness of You release where he took jazz classics and reworked them. We’ll also hear from two artists out on the Black Opry Tour including Norfolk’s Roberta Lea. Also, music from Tylar Bryant who is quickly making a name for himself in Nashville circles. Celebrating Black History month, on the Highway. Sunday night at 9 on 89.5, or listen anytime on-demand online.
