World Cafe - April 9th - 13th

Apr 8, 2018

Here is the WORLD CAFE schedule for this week and next:

Monday, April 9th – Best World Cafe Performances of 2018 So Far 

Lizz Wright

Lizz Wright's soulful band knocked our socks off when they came in to perform live at World Café earlier this year. Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats brought tons of heart, Glen Hansard brought enough vocal prowess to blow the roof off, and Margo Price brought total tenderness. Hear standout sessions from the first quarter of 2018. 

Tuesday, April 10th – Courtney Marie Andrews 

Courtney Marie Andrews is one of those rare talents that makes you say - this is the real deal. Courtney shares stories about sleeping in tents and gas stations after leaving home at age 16 to pursue music, being taught to sing by Aretha Franklin (kinda), and performs music you don’t want to miss from her country-folk leaning new album May Your Kindness Remain. 

Wednesday, April 11th – Kyle Craft 

Kyle Craft

Kyle Craft is very good at telling stories, and it just so happens he has a few autobiographical ones to share, including being stuck on an illegal pot farm to diving for snakes in the Louisiana swamps. He’ll talk about those tales and perform songs from his new album Full Circle Nightmare. 

Thursday, April 12th – Nashville Session: Dom Flemons 

Forget John Wayne or Clint Eastwood as your primary image of an American cowboy. Instead make room for Dom Flemons Presents Black Cowboys, an album where the co-founder of the Carolina Chocolate Drops tells stories of real-life superheroes like Bass Reeves, the black man who inspired the iconic character The Lone Ranger.

Friday, April 13th – Laura Veirs 

Laura Viers

Laura Veirs visits the Cafe to perform live and to talk about some of her creative projects - including a new album called The Lookout, writing with Neko Case and kd lang for their 2016 collaborative record called case/lang/veirs, and the inventive solution she found as a mom on tour for storing a sleeping baby on a plane. 

Next week:

Monday, April 16th – Field Report
Tuesday, April 17th – Squirrel Nut Zippers 
Wednesday, April 18th – Erika Wennerstrom 
Thursday, April 19th – Superorgansim 
Friday, April 20th – NEEDLE DROP: Record Store Day

You can hear World Café with host Talia Schlanger every weekday at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91!
