It’s Earth Day this week, and any good folk show has to play some hippie earth songs, so we played a few earth & earthy numbers. What better place to get your fill of tree huggin’ songs than at a folk festival, and we looked ahead to a couple of good ones to consider trekking to this summer. And, some fabulous new music. A jam packed show once again.

Not much in the theme department this week other than a couple of upcoming concerts and Elysha’s upcoming birthday. Otherwise, it was all great music, all the time, and we covered a whole lot of it this week. Listener Claire called this a “perfect show,” and who are we to argue with a dedicated listener like Claire?
