“Hits From Home” is an extension of Tom Bledsoe and Rick Kirby’s music of today: a reflection of the many influences that have shaped mountain music, past and present. Rich Kirby, one of the founders of Appalshop’s record label and a long-time staff member of our radio station, learned mountain music at the feet of his grandfather, Addie Graham, who also released an album on June Appal Recordings. Guitar player Tommy Bledsoe has performed and recorded with the Home Folks, Wry Straw, Appalshop's Roadside Theater, and the group Skin and Bonz with his wife Joy D'Elia. “Hits From Home” presents old-time mountain music and lively good times.


“Rich Kirby is a virtuosic fiddler, bajno player, and mandolinist.” - University of Kentucky
