Ways to Connect

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.

Mavis Staples is an alchemist of American music, and has continuously crossed genre lines like no musician since Ray Charles. Weaving herself into the very fabric of gospel, soul, folk, pop, R&B, blues, rock, and even hip hop over the better part of the last 60 years, the iconic singer has seen and sung through so many changes, always rising up to meet every road unwaveringly.

Lucinda Williams, The Ghosts of Highway 20, disc 2, feature CD 2/26

Feb 15, 2016

Lucinda Williams has just released her new double CD The Ghosts of Highway 20. After 11 highly acclaimed studio albums, Williams is in the most prolific period of her nearly four-decade career, as she continues to challenge herself creatively. 

Standing at the crossroads of modern bluegrass and newgrass, The Infamous Stringdusters are a band that is “stretching bluegrass from within” (NY Times). For their sixth studio album, Ladies & Gentlemen, the band invited a dozen of their favorite female singers to join them.

Carrie Rodriguez, a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas, finds beauty in the cross-pollination of diverse traditions.  A passionate performer, she effortlessly melds fiery fiddle playing, electrifying vocals and a fresh interpretation of new and classic songs with an “Ameri-Chicana” attitude. Her newest project, the upcoming Spanish/English album “Lola,” is both a return to her musical roots and something of a departure where she delivers her own twangy, Texas-bred twist on Mexican Ranchera songs, creating culturally blended music for a culturally blended world. 

The annual Cayamo Roots Music Cruise, billed as a 'Journey Through Song', features an eclectic lineup of Americana and Indie artists and is known for its once-in-a-lifetime collaborations. 

Tedeschi Trucks Band, Let Me Get By, feature CD, 1/22

Jan 20, 2016

Tedeschi Trucks Band, led by the husband-and-wife team of singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi and guitar virtuoso Derek Trucks, will be releasing their third CD 'Let Me Get By', at the end of this month. KSUT will be featuring a preview of the new release in its entirety, at noon on Friday, 1/22.

KSUT will present Martha Scanlan in concert Saturday, January 16 at the Henry Strater Theatre. As a warm-up, we'll be featuring her latest CD, 'The Shape Of Things Gone Missing, The Shape Of Things To Come', on Friday 1/15 at 12 noon. 

The stunning album is the result of a relative hiatus from the road; five years spent immersed in working and living on a 120 year old small family cattle ranch in a remote corner of Southeastern Montana. Tongue River Stories was recorded on location there four years ago. 

KSUT will feature 'Sermon on the Rocks', the new album from critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Josh Ritter on Friday, January 8 at 12 noon. The album appeared on several listener polls and industry 'best of' lists as we wrapped up 2015, including KSUT's.

Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings are here to help music fans get into the holiday spirit with their new album It’s A Holiday Soul Party.

The 11-song set of original and traditional songs is the group’s first holiday record, and follows their Grammy-nominated 2014 album Give The People What They Want.
