In this episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," host, Ben Kieffer will chat with Iowa roots artist, Susan Werner.
Listen and download the podcast to find out more about her new album, Hayseed.
Werner is a true performer and a veteran Java Blend artist. She connects her music to contemporary agricultural problems in songs like "Herbicides." At the same time Werner is grounded in the real-world experience of her life growing up as a farm kid.
This week on The Folk Tree, join us for exclusive Iowa Public Radio recordings of Iowa native Susan Werner (now based in Chicago, and known around the world), from the Oster Regent Theater in Cedar Falls; and jazzy blues, or perhaps bluesy jazz, from The Hot Club of Davenport, recorded live at Muddy Waters in Bettendorf.
We'll also hear music from Peter Mayer, Claudia Schmidt, Jean Ritchie, and the Old Crow Medicine Show, among others.
