Back Porch Bluegrass host Paul Trenwith is a founder member of the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, playing banjo and occasionally singing harmony parts. Paul has always been an enthusiastic advocate for and promoter of bluegrass music, and when the opportunity for a radio show was offered, decided there was no better time than now for a programme of bluegrass music. Using his own vast archive of CD’s and vinyl records, Paul has produced ‘Back Porch Bluegrass’, featuring a wide range of the genre’s best performers. The show includes tracks from the classic bands, the traditional stylists and contemporary groups as well as some ‘roots’ bluegrass and newgrass. NZ and Australian bluegrass gets an airing, and every show will include some of his favourites such as Doyle Lawson, Laurie Lewis, Rhonda Vincent, Flatt and Scruggs, Blue Highway, Ricky Skaggs and maybe even the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band.
