“Forget the stereotypes, this eye-opening program celebrates the eclectic world of today’s Amerindian music and introduces its greatest artists.”

Presented by Craig Harris. Music historian, educator, storyteller, percussionist, and host of a Bluegrass Country radio show (Fridays, 10PM- 1AM), Craig Harris is the author of many books, including  Bluegrass, Newgrass, Old-time and Americana Music (2018), and the forthcoming Rise Up: Indigenous Music in the 21st Century. A guest percussionist for many musicians including Rick Danko (The Band), and Los Texmaniacs, he is a member of the Gaea Star Band (with whom he’s co-hosted the syndicated Gaea Crystal Radio Hour since 2014) and Two-Day Jeans. After teaching music in public/charter schools for more than a quarter of a century, Harris launched the Drum Away the Blues program in 2009. Since then, he’s presented multimedia programs on Indigenous music, America’s musical roots, Woodstock’s 50th anniversary, and rock and roll.
