On the show this week, I feature the brave and personal new album from Mary Chapin Carpenter, and the Appalachia-tinged harmonies from the latest album by the Honey Dewdrops. I’ll also play songs from new releases by Gigi Love, Black Prairie, and Ben Sollee, to name just a few. Join me this Saturday at 8pm for Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio.
