On the show this week, I feature the candid songwriting of Rebecca Loebe, and rootsy folk songs from the newest Moors and McCumber release. I’ll also play tracks from new discs by Charlie Peacock, Forest Sun, and Sandy Cash, to name just a few. Join me this Saturday at 8pm for Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio.
