On the show this week, I feature the alt-bluegrass of the Coal Porters, and the harmony-driven sounds of The Stray Birds. I’ll also play tracks from new releases by Ricky Skaggs, The Foghorn Stringband, and the Abrams Brothers, to name just a few. Join me this Saturday at 8pm for Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio.
