The WDVX Blue Plate Special – 12/9 – Lazybirds
December 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The band Lazybirds began twenty years ago, when Jay Brown and James T Browne, who had played acoustic blues and folk together in high-school in Birmingham Alabama, moved up to Boone NC where they became immersed in the rich musical heritage of the Appalachians, while at the same time delving deeper into blues and jazz. Lazybirds was formed with Mitch Johnston on bass and Andy Christopher on tenor guitar and tenor banjo, later adding the great Alfred Michels on guitar and fiddle. More recently, the line-up has changed somewhat, with Asheville musicians Cas Sochacki on upright bass and steel guitar, Brad Pope on tenor guitar and mandolin, and upright bass.
