Fiddler Patrick McGonigle and music journalist Emma John uncover bluegrass music one iconic record at a time in The Breakdown, a new limited series from The Bluegrass Situation.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding podcast for bluegrass novices and experts!

Who would have thought a Brit and a Canadian could create such an entertaining and informative insight into this great music genre! It’s a fantastic way in for people like me who enjoy bluegrass but don’t know where to start, lots of great chat, knowledge and interviews, really easy to listen to, Emma’s brine and Patrick’s hog-fat have created a ‘salty dog’ gem of a podcast! Sub. Scribed.
