East Tennessee has been Charlie Lutz’ home for more than 25 years, but he is originally from Springfield, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C. When he was growing up in the 1960s and 1970s, the D.C. area was brimming with bluegrass music. Charlie was fortunate to see many of the first generation masters and the great D.C. area bands such as the Seldom Scene and Country Gentlemen many times. Through the years, he has continued listening and learning about many types of music with enthusiasm. He likes to mix well-known and lesser-known material on my programs, including selections from hard-to-find LPs.
Charlie is a geologist and his “day job” is with an engineering firm in Knoxville. Send him an e-mail if you’d like to request a song or comment on the music.
“Thanks for listening to my programming on WDVX! On Sunday afternoons, I mix bluegrass, old-time, honky tonk, classic country, folk, and other musical odds and ends on the Clinch River Breakdown. On Tuesday evenings, Alex Leach and I stick to bluegrass on the Bluegrass Special.“
