Livingston Taylor
Artist

The other day, Livingston Taylor was out on Martha's Vineyard enjoying the beautiful summer weather. I had the chance to catch up with him. We talked all about his life in music - teaching, performing, surrounding himself with amazing young talent, and about how he and his siblings (James, Kate and little brother Hugh) have great admiration for each other, while still being a bit competitive.  There's obviously a lot of love in that Taylor family.

Today, we're featuring a mini-concert from an artist you might first know as an actor. Lera Lynn's turn on the second season of True Detective introduced her to a lot of America, including myself. But those in the know have recognized her voice, style and songwriting ability, shown on albums like Resistor or The Avenues.

All Songs Considered's Robin Hilton talks with NPR Music's Ann Powers and Lauren Onkey about the life and legacy of the Queen of Soul. Aretha Franklin passed away on Thursday at the age of 76. In this career-spanning conversation, we share the songs and stories behind one of the most influential artists of all time, from her earliest days singing gospel in her father's church, through her 1980s pop hits, later collaborations with artists like Lauryn Hill and much more.

Cattle raids, battles, betrayals and family loyalties are all commemorated in the ballads of the borderlands between Scotland and England, sometimes referred to as "the debatable lands." Join host Fiona Ritchie to explore this rich seam of music and song.
