It is quite remarkable how much of American roots music is related to the style we know as swing. Boomers were made aware of the style through our parents who played a great deal of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and others on that old console stereo. Most of us had little idea what we were hearing, but others absorbed the music and took it as their own. For the next couple of weeks, we’ll dig into some great swing-style roots music. We'll open with some classics and later feature some contemporary players whose style has been influenced by swing. It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing … this week on The Sing Out!

No folk musician developed his style in a vacuum. They were always influenced by a past master. Whether they learned the master’s style by listening to recording, watching film or by sitting knee to knee until the information was passed on completely. This week and next, we honor present day players and some of their influences with a program aptly named: Respect Your Elders, Part One. We’ll include blues players, bluegrassers, great vocalists and players and singers from the UK. We’ll hear Jimmy Burns, Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard, Sheila Kay Adams, Louis Killen and many more.
