Local favorites Dry Cabin String Band performing bluegrass standards and chatting with Alaska Live host Lori Neufeld about live music in the age of coronavirus and how their band formed.

Thanks to UAF's Summer Sessions and Michelle Bartlett for getting creative and filming Musc in the Garden and inviting KUAC's Lori Neufeld to the filmings to conduct interviews for Alaska "Almost" Live. Also thanks to Josh Bennett of Sound Reinforcement Specialists and Joel Parrott of Alaska Universal Productions for the audio set up and the audio recordings.

Alaska Live is made possible by a generous grant from Design Alaska.

Live performance and conversation with a studio audience marked this Alaska Live a special one. The Norris Bowers Band combines high-octane old time with all the drama and harmonies of bluegrass. Two Alaskan families that have been playing at the same festivals and around the same campfires for decades have gotten together to record an album "Gin Chicken" and tour the state. First stop on the Alaska Tour, KUAC's Alaska Live Archive Studio.
