On the next Fresh Air - for the July 4th holiday, we go deep in our archive for some great American roots music.  We’ll listen back to a 1988 interview with the revered folk and bluegrass guitarist and singer, the late Doc Watson.  And we’ll hear his 1989 Fresh Air concert.

In HOUR ONE of Folk Alley, new music from Ben Sollee, Jason Wilber, David Rawlings, Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer; we'll feature songs to help heal the divide with Martin Sexton, Mavis Staples, North Mississippi Allstars; an exclusive in-studio session from the 2017 30A Songwriters Festival with Texas songwriter - Robert Ellis; plus favorites from Red Horse, The Sparrow Quartet, The Civil Wars, Jason Isbell, and many more.
