Live music is important to us here at IPR. Because of that, we regularly travel to festivals and music venues to record musicians in live performance. Then we bring the recordings back and share them with you on the radio. On Sunday, April 7, The Folk Tree presents two live recordings from the 2010 Iowa Arts Festival in Iowa City.
During the 2:00 hour, it's indie-roots duo The Pines. David Huckfelt and Benson Ramsey are both Iowa natives, but they first met and began playing together in Arizona, and they're now based out of the Twin Cities.
During the 3:00 hour, hear mandolin whiz and bluegrass songstress Sarah Jarosz. A Texas girl, Jarosz was still in high school when she recorded her first album, 2009's Song Up in Her Head.
