della mae by ryan nolanToday on the World Cafe, it’s the unmistakably modern and inventive bluegrass string band, Della Mae. When two-time Grand National Fiddle Champion, Kimber Ludiker, founded the band in 2009, they were the only all-female bluegrass outfit on the circuit. They released an EP in May called The Butcher Shoppe and recorded a full-length album while on tour this year. We’ll get a preview of those new songs in today’s charismatic live performance recorded at the Americana Music Festival in Nashville. That’s next, on the World Cafe with host Raina Douris.

World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 /  streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org  / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App! Download it today for your favorite mobile device.
