Back Porch Bluegrass is hosted by Paul Trenwith, a founder member of the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, playing banjo and occasionally singing harmony parts. From the mid-70’s to the mid-90’s, Paul and his fiddle-playing wife Colleen played as mostly gospel music, bluegrass-style, with a group of friends, and often featuring songs that Paul had written. He has become something of a musical ‘jack-of-all-trades’, playing banjo, dobro, pedal steel and rhythm guitar. He also plays double bass in the Hamilton-based Irish band. Paul has always been an enthusiastic advocate for and promoter of bluegrass music, and the show includes tracks from the classic bands, the traditional stylists and contemporary groups as well as some ‘roots’ bluegrass and new-grass. NZ and Australian bluegrass gets an airing, and every show includes some of his personal favourites.

Back Porch Bluegrass is produced by Free FM (New Zealand) and is syndicated on Radio Waterloo from the NCRA Community Radio Exchange.

Back Porch Bluegrass airs on Radio Waterloo on Fridays from 1:00pm to 2:00pm.

Deep Threes – Music Beyond Boundaries

Deep Threes | Music Beyond Boundaries (black and red text)Deep Threes — Music Beyond Boundaries is the weekly radio show that brings you eclectic instrumental soundscapes that fuse jazz, electronica, soundtracks, modern classical, experimental music, and more… “Deep” is a nod to the deep tracks of heard on freeform radio. “Threes” refers to the MP3s that fill up our hard drives and computing clouds.

Since going on the air in 2010, Deep Threes has brought the listener long pieces that take music beyond boundaries. New releases from independent artists. Rediscovered gems from the past. Compelling pieces from with room to breathe. Music with bite, passion and depth.

Themes are not chosen so much as they emerge. Long jams and instrumental tracks create a sense of flow. Light touches of spoken word, found sound, and subtle remixes bind the music into sets.

A Deep Threes mix can float over the clouds in the night sky, or gradually take you across terrain that is radically different than the starting point. Your destination: an oasis of deep listening and discovery.

At the heart of this process is the music. The synergy of math and physics, mechanics and electronics, infused with the human spirit, rising up in a river of feelings alongside all the glistening gems we found along the way. The Deep Threes.
