This week, Host and Producer Kim Clark brings us Studio B sessions with two bands who have "tossed out the rule book" and are forging their own musical paths - the Resonant Rogues and Horse Feathers. "The Resonant Rogues weave together European, Middle Eastern, and American folk music on their new release Autumn of the World, said Clark.

"Marcus has spent a lot of time the last few years hanging out with the Tedeski-Trucks Band so we'll to take the opportunity to dip into the archives for a 1998 session with Derek Trucks as well." Studio B Rewind, every Sunday evening at 7pm on Grassroots, Listener Powered radio WNCW - 88.7 FM and streaming online at wncw.org.
