Back to the Blue Ridge on WVTF

Sundays from 2:00pm to 4:00pm on WVTF

Back to the Blue Ridge is WVTF's locally produced two hour weekly program featuring traditional acoustic music of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Piedmont region.

From traditional to contemporary bluegrass and old-time music to blues, gospel and a few Americana selections, host and producer Kinney Rorrer each weekend features an eclectic mix of music focusing on the tradition and culture of the region served by WVTF.

Kinney is a retired history professor at Danville Community College and an avid lover of old-time and bluegrass music.  As a musician, he's known for his skill as an old-time banjo picker.

Kinney was recently featured on a segment of NPR's Here and Now to listen to the story click here
