Join us from 12:00pm-2:00pm EST this Sunday November 18th for an in-studio live set and interview with Brooklyn-based HAM Rodeo. HAM Rodeo was formed in late 2017 by four mainstays of the New York City bluegrass scene. Led by vocalists Christian Apuzzo and Larry Cook, guitarist Justin Camerer, and drummer Ellery Marshall, the band realized there was a hunger among listeners in the traditional acoustic music scene for solid, classic country music for folks to dance to. Armed with a backlog of songs from the greats - everyone from mainstays like Hank, Buck, and Merle, to newer influences such as Caleb Klauder - the band has recently begun writing original music for their forthcoming debut album. They remain firmly in the pocket of traditional American country music, while stretching those boundaries a bit to suit their taste - but always focused on keeping the dance floor full. As always, tune into wkcr.org or 89.9 FM-NY to catch this special, American roots program.
