Show nine is the first of our three shows from the legendary Martin Guitar Works in Nazareth, PA. Martin Guitars is synonymous with excellence since 1833 and one of the most famous names in the history of American popular music. The folks at Martin welcomed Alternate Root TV with open arms giving us access to their factory, historian Dick Boak and CEO Christian F. Martin IV plus gave us the museum to bring in some excellent musicians to perform in front of one of the finest guitar collections in the world. Reb Landers does a splendid interview with Christian F. Martin IV and YARN performs four unreleased songs from their upcoming album. Keeping with the Martin theme we feature a few videos of artists performing with Martin Guitars including Roger Salloom, Otis Gibbs and Joe Thompson.
The weekly American Roots Music program brought to you by The Alternate Root Magazine features in studio guests, interviews, music video and live performances from the top performers in American Roots, blues, folk, bluegrass and indie roots music. Hosted by Alternate Root Magazine senior writer Reb Landers.
