Beginning May 1, the much-loved program “Acoustic Sunrise” returns to the airwaves on WUMB, Sunday mornings from 8 AM – noon. Hosted by local folk musician Buffie Groves, this show will feature a wide range of performers and musical styles, from heritage artists like Robert Johnson and Big Mama Thornton up through the singer-songwriters of the Boomer generation, and all the way to contemporary folk and acoustic musicians who are carrying on these traditions for a modern audience.
Both solo and as the “not David Fishken” half of the duo “Fishken & Groves,” over the past 20 years Buffie has performed, run open mikes, helped run concert series and much more throughout New England. She is “both humbled and beyond excited to be taking the helm of ‘Acoustic Sunrise’ for WUMB.” Buffie says, “This is the music that I love, and love to share. I hope that by putting it together thoughtfully I can give listeners both an enjoyable Sunday morning experience of hearing old favorites along with the opportunity to discover new music and artists to add to their own ‘favorites’ list!”
So tune in for Acoustic Sunrise, Sunday mornings at 8 AM, or listen online at wumb.org!
