Dave Higgs, host of Bluegrass Breakdown, brings listeners an emotionally charged, heartrending, paint-peeling, splinter-kicking one hour bluegrass show. Thematically, Bluegrass Breakdown is all over the bluegrass map. Based in Nashville, Tenn., the show features scintillating conversation and live music with some of the best in bluegrass. The goal of the show is to edify, educate and entertain — leaving no instrument unpicked, no song unsung and no musician un-interviewed.
