    Any stations with Newgrass (Progressive Bluegrass)?

    I listen to Bluegrass Junction and do enjoy the traditional Bluegrass songs, but I'm more drawn to the Progressive Bluegrass, aka, "Newgrass", that they occasionally play. Artists like Sam Bush, Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck (love Bela and his wife Abigail Washburn), ... It would be great for it to be less occasional, but I doubt that needle will move much.

    I've got an Amazon Echo in my workshop at home that I've been using to play Amazon's Bluegrass channel, and they play close to a 50/50 mix of traditional and progressive Bluegrass. That really opened my ears to what's out there in the Progressive world. I keep my Alexa app open on my phone because I'm constantly checking on who's playing that song.

    So does anyone know if there any other stations that might play Newgrass more often?

    Thanks.

    Welcome to Sirius Buzz, Irony58! I knew your grandfather, Irony56. Okay, moving on....... Radio Kansas (KHCC/KHCD/KHCT) has a four-hour Saturday-afternoon Newgrass program and a full-time Newgrass channel on HD4 and streaming online. Among the artists they play: Sally Rogers, Allison Krauss, Nickel Creek, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, the Punch Brothers, the Infamous Stringdusters and the Yonder Mountain String Band.

    Thanks, Rewind. Irony57 and I were wondering what happened to good ol' 56 . Anyway, I'm mainly looking for Sirius XM stations. I don't want to stream in the car because of my data plan. But I'll have to give Newgrass Valley a try when in the shop.
