THIS WEEK Sunday, September 24, 2017 | 9-11AM

9:30AM Fred Wickham Music brings the ol’ band back together to celerate the release of his new album at Hadacol Reunion and Fred Wickham Record Release Party happening at Knuckleheads Saloon in KCMO on Sept. 29th. Fred will play live in the studio and we’ll hear tracks from the new album recorded by the legendary Lou Whitney (The Morels, The Skeletons) in Springfield, MO.

10:15 The Creek Rocks (Cindy Woolf + Mark Bilyeu) join us in the studio to play live, fresh off of the Bluegrass Battles Hunger festival in St. Joseph, MIssouri (Sept. 22 & 23).

“Wolf Hunter” is the debut CD by The Creek Rocks from Springfield, Missouri. The title is an amalgam of the names of the two folklorists whose collections provided the raw materials for the songs on the album — John Quincy Wolf of Batesville, Arkansas and Max Hunter of Springfield, Missouri. Cindy Woolf was raised in Batesville, along the southern foothills of the Ozarks Mountain region, and Mark Bilyeu hails from Springfield, located atop the Ozarks Plateau. They began their musical collaboration in 2003 with Mark at the helm for Woolf’s debut CD “Simple and Few.” They married each other in 2013, shortly after the release of Cindy’s third solo CD, “May.” Joining them on Wolf Hunter are bassist Jason Chapman, also known from The Chapmans, the award-winning family bluegrass band; and percussionist Jay Williamson, who is a sixteen-year veteran of another family band, Big Smith, of which Mark was a founding member as well. Big Smith released seven CDs during their tenure, and Mark has a solo album to his credit, 2005’s “First One Free.”

Plus, roots music from our collections.
