Meet us Backstage

The Show On The Road is a collaboration between Z.Lupetin and the passionate music lovers at the Bluegrass Situation.

Episodes are taped wherever the road takes us; we've recorded backstage at festivals, in empty bars, in tour buses, and many places in between.


It's our goal to spotlight and celebrate a broad continuum of songwriting and musical traditions - from groovy pop-rock to twangy country to lush indie-folk; if audiences are singing along, we know there's a troubadour with a story to tell.
