Don't miss an in-studio visit with our friends from New Orleans, The Iguanas, Friday 6/7 at 11 AM. Their music blends Mexican conjunto, R&B, Latin and Caribbean rhythms, and they've just released a great new CD, 'Sin to Sin'. KSUT's Jim Belcher will host the band. You can also catch them live at the Pagosa Folk & Bluegrass Festival this weekend.
Peter Karp & Sue Foley, along with their band, will join us in-studio for some live music and conversation Friday morning (5/31) at 11. They're in town for the Durango Blues Train this weekend. Tune-in for a lively session!
The debut album 'The Mountain Moves' from Treetop Flyers – who named themselves after a Stephen Stills song – effortlessly captures the spirit of late-1960s west coast pop-rock: the Byrds, America, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
With his last two albums, 2006’s Grammy-nominated People Gonna Talk and 2008’s The Hard Way, James Hunter delivered a classic yet perpetually modern brand of rhythm and blues that captivated listeners across generations and earned him two Billboard Blues #1′s, tours with Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Etta James, and Willie Nelson, performances on Leno, Letterman, and Conan, and critical raves everywhere from the NY Times to USA Today.
Steve Earle's new 12-track set is the anticipated follow up to 2011's Grammy Award-nominated album 'I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive' and is the first billed as Steve Earle & The Dukes (And Duchesses). The album is also the first to feature 'The Dukes' band name since 1987's Exit 0.
Patty Griffin is set to release her new album, 'American Kid', on May 7. The album, co-produced by Griffin and Craig Ross, is her seventh and first for New West Records. It's her first album of mainly new material since the acclaimed Children Running Through in 2007. In between then and now, she made the Grammy Award-winning Downtown Church in 2010 and became a member of Band of Joy alongside Robert Plant - who is also featured on American Kid.
Steve Martin is currently in the fifth decade of a varied and accomplished career as a comedian, actor, author and playwright, and as a Grammy®-winning, boundary-pushing bluegrass banjoist and songwriter. His fellow Texas native Edie Brickell initially burst onto the national scene in the late ’80s fronting the New Bohemians, and has since carved out an iconoclastic solo career that’s solidified her reputation as compelling singer and a songwriter of rare insight.
