6/8/2008 Womenfolk


Back in the saddle after travels to Washington, Idaho, Montana and Pittsburgh, I played a lot of songs this Sunday about homecomings along with new music I've been stocking up. Also, we paid tribute to the late great Utah Phillips:http://www.utahphillips.org. For more personal musings about Utah, visit my music blog here:http://soundofblackbirds.blogspot.com/search?q=utah+phillips.

Next Sunday tune in as I welcome up-and-coming Americana singer Eilen Jewell:http://www.eilenjewell.com/ for the first time to Womenfolk. We'll be talking about her music and her Twin Cities debut at Lee's Liquor Lounge::http://www.leesliquorlounge.com/ on Thursday, June 19th. Hope you can catch it! -efs.

P.S. Big thanks to Pat Nelson and Amanda Balagur for doing such a great job subbing and engineering for me while I was away--so nice to know I left the show in such good hands!
