Tuesday March 5th,
Jan Dale’sradio show SOuthern Style will be featuring a spotlight on Mike Seeger including a vintage interview she made with him some 20 years ago.

Mike SeegarMike Seeger was a musician and collector of songs by traditional musicians. In 1958 he co-founded the New Lost City Ramblers with John Cohen and Tom Paley. He was also part of Strange Creek Singers and has released a number of solo projects including Southern Banjo Sounds and Early Southern Guitar Sounds both for Smithsonian Folkways. He received six Grammy Nominations plus other awards and acknowledgments and was a multi-instrumental.

Seeger was best known as a performer of old-time music. However, Mike Seeger had a significant impact on bluegrass music. As an engineer/producer, he recorded some of the first albums to be issued by bluegrass artists. Seegar was also one of the first people to write about the music. With his trusty reel-to-reel tape recorder, he captured countless hours of live bluegrass—as played by the masters—in the heyday of the 1950s. And, as a solo performer and member of the New Lost City Ramblers, he was a tireless interpreter of rural roots music.
