Zan & the Winter Folk
WEXT

Local 518 artist, Zan Strumfeld has been a favorite here at WEXT.  She's been on a quest for just the right sound. She thinks she has found it with the new bandmates that make up The Winter Folk.  Find out where the band name comes from, and hear the resulting sound (minus their drummer) in this new studio session. We're looking forward to the EP they talk about as well.

Mark Lavengood

Mark Lavengood spent time honing his touring skills working and playing tunes with Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys.  Now, he's back out on his own making tunes.  And this week, he was driving from Michigan accross to New York to pick up his band en route to Grey Fox Bluegrass.  Hope you get the chance to see him soon.

Thanks for the talk, Mark.

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.
