Sunday, November 19 on The Mulberry Tree - November 14, 2017

Hello,

This Sunday, November 19, tune in to The Mulberry Tree as I’ll be featuring an hour of songs that highlight the pedal steel guitar, or just steel guitar as most call it.

I will introduce each song and add the name of the musician performing steel guitar on that song. Please join me and these fine musicians, also listed is the steel guitar musician you will hear for each song:

Notting Hillbillies featuring Paul Franklin
Bob Dylan featuring Pete Drake
Matraca Berg featuring Dan Dugmore
Steely Dan featuring Jeff "Skunk" Baxter
The Country Duo featuring Marco Pascolini
Cave States featuring John Higgins
Big Smith featuring Brad Sarno
Melinda Mullins featuring Chad Graves
Barak Hill featuring David Anderson
Judy Collins featuring Buddy Emmons
