This Friday night / Saturday morning at midnight, True Brit! does soul as we talk to Julie Dexter, the world renowned, award winning, British vocalist considered by many to be one of the most influential female vocalists of our generation.

Everything’s coming up roses this Tuesday on Womenfolk as we celebrate the recent Earth Day holiday with springtime songs about flowers blooming, birds returning and all kinds of good, green things. You’ll hear favorites from Nanci Griffith, Gillian Welch and Emmylou Harris as well as hot new releases from Eliza Gilkyson, The Wailin’ Jennys and this month’s Womenfolk Find Abbie Gardner.

According to City Pages, to watch Haley Bonar perform is haunting and humbling; rarely is it so keenly obvious that an artist is doing precisely what they were born to do. Sleepy but never sedate, Bonar’s set was as simple and as perfect as a pocketwatch, and as intimate as a lullaby Haley will entertain us with a few solo acoustic numbers in Studio 4.
Boy, I can hardly wait for this!
