Longtime friends of the station, Nathan Blake Lynn on guitar, Josh Coffey on fiddle, and Eddie Coffey on standup bass, play tunes from their new album (set to drop early October) of long forgotten songs gathered by Mary Wheeler of Paducah, as well as some familiar favorites.

The Pickin' Party returns to LBL's Homeplace this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Guests are welcome to bring lawn chairs and picnic baskets to see old time music on a rustic stage. Nathan Blake Lynn and Josh Coffey emcee while Dixie Volunteers, Charlie Stamper, and buck dancer Thomas Maupin and Overall Creek Band perform. On Sounds Good, Tracy Ross speaks with Homeplace Lead Interpreter Cindy Earls about the event.

Hear the conversation:

WKMS hosts a special early-bird fundraising event with live string band music in Studio A for Sounds Good with Tracy Ross. One of the rotating hosts of Music from the Front Porch, Mike Gowen, joins in to introduce old-time string music of the Purchase Region with Nathan Blake Lynn and Josh Coffey, known through Bawn in the Mash and other groups. 

As part of today's special presentation, Nathan plays music from his historical music project titled The Places I Used To Know. The album features 10 original songs focused on Lynn’s experiences in the Jackson Purchase. All songs were written, performed, and engineered by Lynn at his farm in Heath, Kentucky. For more information visit
