This week's edition of The Folk Tree includes a very recent live recording and interview with the group Finnders and Youngberg, a Colorado-based group which includes Iowa native and award-winning songwriter Mike Finnders; a live recording of Iowa's own Jordan Sellergren; and music in honor of the summer solstice. You'll also hear from Norman Blake, Patti Casey, and Greg Brown, among others. Tune in between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 23 for some great music!
Iowa Public Radio's Cedar Falls facilities are the home of Studio-One-the-room (as opposed to Studio-One-the-programming-stream), an excellent venue for live music. As I write this, Studio-One-the-room is undergoing renovation and not available for use, but on April 28, The Folk Tree brings you some music that was recorded live there.
In the 2:00 hour, it's our favorite metaphysical Minnesotan singer-songwriter, Peter Mayer. Then in the 3:00 hour, Sam Knutson, Jordan Sellegren, and John Waite play music from their Iowa Opera House project.
