See what happens when you attend a Roman Catholic school (or two, if you're really into it)? When the mind is allowed to stray, it wanders into strange territory. When this happens, the best I can do is write down all the ideas that come to me, listen to the music, musicians and singers that go with them, and divide them up into listenable groups. Here, hopefully, is one of them, and as I look down the titles, I feel that "Something Completely Spiritual" might just work.  

Care for a few frinstansez?  

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.
