Larry Groce On Mountain Stage

Larry Groce performs on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. It's been a long time since the Mountain Stage host and founder last performed a full set of music on the show — and even longer since he's recorded and released an album. But both of these things have happened in 2016.

Brigid Mae Power On World Cafe

Aug 16, 2016

Brigid Mae Power's work, which is rooted in the acoustic world of traditional Irish tunes, creeps up on you like a fog. The Irish singer has recorded her music — most of which she's released on Bandcamp — in unique locations, such as old churches. Power's chosen locale for her new, self-titled album? Portland, Oregon. (American singer and songwriter Peter Broderick, who'd met her at a gig, convinced her to travel all that way to record.)

Be sure to check the VuHaus link each day for great live performances. On Monday, a very special performance with Bonnie Raitt and Amos Lee you won't want to miss.

  Rick Simpson is taking the night off, and instead of Gumbo Variations, we bring you two sets from this year's Newport Folk Festival: The Violent Femmes followed by Ryan Adams and the Incredible String Dusters. Tune in tonight at 6  PM, only on Different Radio.

API TEST FOR WITH

At some point in the 1960s, steel drum (a.k.a. pan) music became the Caribbean equivalent of cheesy Vegas lounge tunes: something only an ill-dressed tourist might fancy during a cruise ship port o' call. And true, there's probably a thousand bad pan covers of "Yellow Bird" out there, but the tradition is unfairly maligned.

Carrie Rodriguez has been many things: a classically trained violinist turned American fiddler, a duet partner to veteran songwriter Chip Taylor, a successful and popular solo artist in her own right. On occasion, those roles have allowed her Mexican-American roots to bubble to the surface — perhaps in a line sung in Spanish, or through a reference to a classic mariachi song.

World Cafe Next: Bonnie Bishop

May 30, 2016

Many have discovered Bonnie Bishop through Bonnie Raitt, who recorded Bishop's song "Not Cause I Wanted To" on her latest album, Dig In Deep. But Bishop's own new album, Ain't Who I Was, is a treat in and of itself. Produced by Nashville superproducer Dave Cobb, the album is reminiscent of the sound of Dusty Springfield's classic Dusty In Memphis in the way it straddles the line between soul and country.
