At the beginning of the show, we play some powerfully uplifting numbers. Our Gem of Bluegrass compares the violin to the human voice. Later, we explore recent attempts to use CT Scan technology to create copies of centuries-old, master violins. The show concludes with a couple of songs in praise of the Appalachian mountains, and especially mountain people.
