Yes...I know...I know I promised...but...what I mean is...wait a minute...I'm...I'm...I'm KEEPING MY PROMISE! Yes, no more three group Somethings...after this one.  

And, unlike most of the Something shows, this one is almost exclusively Twenty-First Century! And they are as follows, and in this order:  

GREAT AMERICAN TAXI. You'll thrill to hear deathless tunes like Fuzzy Little Hippy Girl, Maud Only Knows and Radiation Blues.

Rhiannon Giddens also returns with a powerful solo performance that features banjo and beat box. Exciting acoustic band Flatt Lonesome show why they’ve earned multiple awards and nominations in just 5 short years.

An eclectic blend of performances including blues, folk, Americana, rock, bluegrass, and jazz. Featured artists include Chris Smither, Happy Traum, Hot Tuna, It's a Beautiful Day, Roy Book Binder, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Ruthie Foster, Bob Margolin, and many more.

Harold Mabern's new album "To Love And Be Loved" and Jason Kao Hwang's musical twists and turns with his band Sing House.

Our guests this week on Art of the Song are Iain Matthews and Andy Roberts of Plainsong. Plainsong was a British folk-rock band, formed in early 1972 by Iain Matthews (formerly of Fairport Convention), Andy Roberts and 2 others. The original group split up before the end of that same year. Some eighteen years later, Andy encountered Iain when he was performing in a pub in Brighton, and the two decided to revive Plainsong. In 2014 they recorded some songs of Richard Farina, to mark the approaching 50th anniversary of his death.

Wilco frontman, Jeff Tweedy tells of the impact on his songs of growing up in the blue-collar town, Belleville, Illinois.  Music became his creative outlet in high school and lead to founding the seminal Americana band, Uncle Tupelo. We hear from Jeff in his Chicago studio "The Loft" about the emergence of Wilco and the place that making music has in his life, including work with Woody Guthrie’s lyrics and producing records with Mavis Staples.

Once Roland (that's meeeee!) gets an idea in his head, it can be very difficult to change to a different idea - - at least, that's what my mother used to tell me. So...in the last couple of weeks, I've become addicted to Something Completely Different shows that feature three musical groups or individuals that somehow fit together - - and, yes, the operant word is "somehow".  

 

This week’s Mountain Stage with Larry Groce features a set from genre-bending jam grass heroes Leftover Salmon, fresh off their busy summer festival touring schedule. You’ll also hear songs from Americana sweetheart Elizabeth Cook, who can be counted on to mix the humorous with the poignant. Cris Jacobs makes his return to the show, earning plenty of new fans in the process. West Virginia fan favorites Quiet make their Mountain Stage debut, and things kick off with the funky creole sounds of the Royal Southern Brotherhood.  

In this week’s encore broadcast, eclectic Americana multi-instrumentalists Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys make their first visit to eTown’s solar-powered stage to share their forward-looking take on American roots music. Also joining us for the first time is Swedish/Icelandic female folk duo My Bubba who share their sparse and beautiful music, as well as stories about their experiences in circus school and side jobs as locomotive engineers.

When: Tuesday, August 1st - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As many of you know, I love to pick three musicians or groups that I feel complement each other in some fashion, build a show around them, in which I repeat the trio ten times for a total of thirty songs (or thereabouts). So...it's happening again, friends, this coming Tuesday.  

Here is this week's World Café line-up:  

 

Monday, July 31, 2017  

Philadelphia's Sheer Mag emerged from a grungy residence called "The Nuthouse" and built a rabid fanbase by playing arena-sized '70s rock to small crowded rooms. They visit World Cafe to share some stories of their gritty DIY beginnings and to perform tracks off their debut full length album, Need To Feel Your Love.

Over and over again, I've had to keep presenting Fake Time on these Something Completely Different promos. "Next Tuesday it's the Fourth of July...actually, it's the Second of July. Next Thursday is the Fourth of July, but what that really means..." and stuff like that. Well, every once in a while the stars line up just right, and this Tuesday is REALLY the Fourth of July...every once in a while...like...RIGHT NOW!  

So...not exactly right now...but Tuesday, for sure. And what you'll be experiencing is...  

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Colorado singer/songwriter Darryl Purpose. After a time studying guitar, he went to Las Vegas as a teenager and began a career as a professional card player. He was soon known as the world’s fastest card counter. Banned from casinos on six continents, he still calls this the “only real job he’s ever had.” In 1996, Darryl began to tour nationally as a solo singer/songwriter. Eight years, six CDs and a thousand shows later, he was headlining the top folk venues and festivals across North America.

Monday, June 26, 2017  
Phoenix holed up in an old Paris opera house in 2014 to begin recording their new album Ti Amo. The French band turned their feelings of unrest about the tumultuous times around them into music that serves as an escape. Ti Amo explores “love, desire, lust and innocence” with the a romanticized flair of summer discos in Italy.

On this week’s broadcast of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce, you’ll hear a set from pop singer and songwriter Brett Dennen, along with his band.

Haunting neo-folk sensation Elephant Revival make their return to the show, with new songs and a few old favorites.

This week, Thursday June 8, join Ric on the Radio as we take an Australian Excursion! From the early roots of rock n' roll to the present, the land of the marsupial is home to a wide range of sounds and styles. Whether based in the thick of the cultural mecca, Sydney, or in the isolation of Perth, Australian artists have long cultivated a unique and independent spirit.
