Guitar Hour

KPBX: Thursday 11am-12pm

Classical guitarist Leon Atkinson joins Verne Windham in the KPBX studio for an hour of live and recorded music.

Harvest Home is produced and hosted by Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, a husband and wife duo who won international acclaim for music on PBS's Civil War documentary.

The songs featured on this special program culled from Jay and Molly's archive of traditional and historical American recordings. Artists include Chet Atkins, Bill Monroe, Pete Seeger, and Merle Haggard.  The songs all have a theme of autumn, Thanksgiving, and of course food!

This Thursday, Oct. 2, The Guitar Hour starts at 10 a.m. for a two-hour KPBX special. Guests Alex de Grassi and Brad Richter perform, plus host Leon Atkinson previews the Harp Guitar Convention taking place that weekend in Coeur d'Alene. "We have all these people representing the wonderful guitar events taking place in the region, and we'll be able to have these great artists interacting on the radio," says co-host Verne Windham.
