The Fayetteville Roots Festival is just less than three months away, but today we take a listen back to some music we recorded during last year's festival but haven't had a chance to play on the air. While Austin-based artist Matt The Electrician played on our live edition of Ozarks at Large during the festival, he also performed during a children's concert at Fayetteville Public Library while he was here.
Jonathan Trawick grew up in Arkansas and has deep roots in the Ozarks. He recently visited his home state from his new home out west and played a couple of tunes for us. He brought along friend and fiddler Alex Sharp.
Angela Meyer has performed music since she was a teenager. Now at 25, she has released her first full-length album of country songs. The McCausland, Ia. based performer recently stopped by the Carver Center for Public Radio to talk with us about her music.
Two years ago, Anna Horton and Joel Ludford were in a car accident that left them with a totaled bus and broken bones. Now, the duo Handmade Moments is making May 21 a positive day by releasing a new album, Paw Paw Tree.
John Two-Hawks and Van Adams collaborate on a new CD (John's 27th) that seeks peace in a turbulent world. Both musicians talked to us about the new album, Peace, and about John's annual Mother's Day concert at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Aud in Eureka Springs.
