In this show we play some heavy hitting favorites, with western NC’s Steep Canyon Rangers showing up in the playlist, and a new and decidedly different approach from The Decemberists, plus one of our favorite Americana bands from Brooklyn, with a new single from Yarn. We’ll also get to some nifty jazz and violin tunes as well as feature an up and coming old time band from the high country here in the old north state.
