1. All-American Bluegrass Girl – A feel-good program about overcoming handicaps and playing music that you love.  Emily Hogeback has been blind from birth, but has never let that limit her happiness.  Her study of the violin led her to fiddlin’ and listening to Bluegrass music on the radio inspired her to pick the dobro.  Emily is also studying voice and when she sings “It’s time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through!” from Disney’s hit song, Let It Go, you realize there are no limits for Emily. She “loves the Bluegrass music with friends and family, she’s an All-American Bluegrass Girl and proud as she can be!”
