roots music

It’s nearly impossible to explain the exceptional talents of EmiSunshine, the 14-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Madisonville, TN. While the music of this “modern-day Janis Joplin” has been described as “old-timey,” she adds her own unique, contemporary blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, bluegrass, gospel, and country, with a sprinkling of blues, delivering vivid emotion with every spirited yet haunting note. She'll be at the Isothermal Community College Performing Arts Center, Saturday, October 6th. Showtime is at 7:30pm

We've got bluegrass all the way from Ontario, Canada in a session with the Slocan Ramblers, who were in the area last month for Jam in the Trees. Reed Turchi and the Kudzu Choir were at Jam in the Trees, too, and they joined us in Studio B to play tunes from the new album Just A Little More Faith. Join Kim Clark this Sunday at 7pm for Studio B Rewind.
