In honor of UPR’s pledge drive, I’m presenting a foot-stomping bluegrass show this week, with featured artists The Steel Wheels and the Evie Ladin Band. I’ll also play tunes from new releases by Blue Mule, Molasses Creek and Mariel Vandersteel, to name just a few. Join me this Saturday at 8pm for Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio
