Episode 59 - Saints and Sinners
This episode is an exploration into the question "Is bluegrass a folk religion?" I hope I don't ruffle anyone's feathers with this little thought excursion. The only purpose is to stimulate thinking. Have fun!

I referenced a Gallup poll on religious affliation over time from 1948 to present. Here is that poll.
I dug through my old photos and didn't find the picture of the piano with the Lord's supper but I did find this one from the same gig. (Pony Express, 1982 Barnesville, GA L-R: Ed Davis, Mark Graves, Brad Laird, Buddy Ashmore) I think that piano was off to our right somewhere.

The closing music for this episode is Cryin' Holy performed by Cedar Hill from their 1981 album "Ruff 'N Ready". Thanks, Cedar Hill, for the tune and for putting up with me for 27 years.
