    A legend is in the house! Welcome, Roland White. Wow, from the Kentucky Colonels to Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys to today's Roland White Band, one of our favorites.

    Still one of the top interviews ever on the Cafe I think. Amazing content:

    Hey Roland, I was so glad to be able to have another brief encounter with you this past summer at The Station Inn. They've been few and far between but always memorable.

    Love from Canada,

    Roland, I've always enjoyed listening to the way you play Soldier's Joy. Also, it's been really great to see the Roland White Band performances at the Frankfort IL Bluegrass Festival!
