Ways to Connect

KSUT is featuring the new Mary Chapin Carpenter release 'The Things That We Are Made Of' this week, playing the full CD at noon on Friday 5/20.

Produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton) and recorded in Nashville, TN, the album features eleven new songs.  Carpenter comments, “Working with Dave felt great from the first day of our sessions. He is always willing to try something new, believes that ‘yes’ is the only answer, and surrounds himself with wonderfully talented and generous musicians; by the end of the project, I felt as if I was a part of a new family.”

Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain, based in Asheville, NC, has just released their 5th studio album 'Southern Crescent'. As part of our 40th anniversary concert series, KSUT will be presenting a CD release party with the band, Friday, May 13, at the Henry Strater Theater in Durango. Tickets available at henrystratertheater.com. KSUT will play the full CD on 5/6 at noon.

Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide to Earth is the rare album that traverses the entire world, both musically and lyrically. It’s dizzyingly diverse, jumping from one style to the next, with ports of call in Motor City and Music Row, Harlem and Stax, Berlin and London, yet it never leaves Simpson’s very specific point of view. It’s his most personal album as well as his most ambitious: a song cycle penned as a sailor’s poignant letter home to the wife and child he left behind.

Judy Collins, the endlessly prolific singer, songwriter, author and activist, recently released 'Strangers Again,' her first studio album in four years.  KSUT will feature the CD Friday, April 22, at noon, the day before her sold-out Durango concert.

In celebration of this weekend's 22nd Annual Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, KSUT will feature the latest CD 'Old Time Reverie', from Mipso, Friday (4/15) at noon. Mipso is one of several fine bluegrass bands traveling to Durango to perform.

When Mipso’s 2013 debut, Dark Holler Pop, rose to #8 on Billboard’s Bluegrass charts, the success surprised a lot of people – Mipso’s four members included. “Well, we didn’t know so many people would buy it,” laughs mandolin player Jacob Sharp, “and we definitely didn’t know we were a bluegrass band.”

KSUT will feature 'This Path Tonight', the new studio album from Graham Nash on Friday 4/8 at noon. Produced by Shane Fontayne, this is Nash's first solo record of new music in fourteen years.  The album, featuring 10 new original songs, is one of reflection and transition of a singer-songwriter whose career (the Hollies, CSN, CSNY) has spanned more than five decades and counting.
 

First impressions matter.  Time and attention-strapped listeners size up an artist within a song or two, then move on or delve in further.  Fortunately, it only takes Margo Price about twenty-eight seconds to convince you that you’re hearing the arrival of a singular new talent.  Margo Price’s debut Third Man Records CD 'Midwest Farmer's Daughter' gives a fresh twist on classic Nashville honky tonk tunes and classic tales of drink and misfortune.  Her voice has that alluring mix of vulnerability and resilience that was once the province of Loretta and Dolly.  It is a tour-de-force performan

Gates of Gold, the new self-produced studio album from Los Lobos, is an American saga in the rich literary tradition of Steinbeck or Faulkner.  Uplifting, hopeful and whimsical, the music touches their diverse musical potpourri. KSUT will feature the CD in its entirety on Friday, March 25 at 12 noon.

Bonnie Raitt, Dig In Deep, feature CD, 3/18

Mar 15, 2016

With 'Dig In Deep', her twentieth album, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt comes out swinging. The new record illustrates the delicate balance of consistency and risk-taking that has defined Raitt's remarkable career for more than forty-five years.

KSUT is pleased to feature Bonnie's new recording this Friday 3/18 at 12 noon. 

We've been looking forward to the release of the new Lake Street Dive CD 'Side Pony', for months - and we're psyched to feature it this Friday (3/11) at noon.   KSUT's appreciation for this band grew considerably after the benefit concert they performed for us in August 2014.  The four band members—drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson—worked with Nashville-based producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) on this record.
