Folk Music

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Dean Gitter. Reading the liner notes for Dean’s latest project is a veritable who’s who in American Folk Music. In those tiny pages, we found enough information to keep researching the journey of folk music for months to come. After a career that included managing legends like Odetta, Dean left the folk scene to stretch his wings in other entrepreneurial endeavors. Now, with the release of his album, Carl Sandburg’s American Songbag 2.0, Dean has returned to his roots, and we are the better for it.

Rounder Records artist Sierra Hull stops by Studio A at KRCB-FM Radio 91 Friday, May 5th in the 2 o'clock hour, to chat with Brian about her show at Sweetwater Music Hall & Cafe in Mill Valley. The show is Friday night at 8:00 pm. Her album WEIGHTED MIND, produced by Bela Fleck is available now on Rounder Records.   

This Saturday, December 29, marks the end of another year Folk and Acoustic music of "Our Roots are Showing.  We'll be playing some of the best of 2012, and maybe even some songs and tunes from the 60's and 70's.

This week on Roots!
