This week on the show, I feature the new release of West Virginia themed songs by Kathy Mattea, and the intelligent and articulate songs of Jesse Terry. I’ll also play songs from new albums by Linda McRae, Cedar Breaks, and Kim and Reggie Harris, to name just a few. Join me this Saturday at 8pm for Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio.
