We decided to alternate between patriotic themes and songs about summer to get our holiday weekend started. So one minute itll be Doc Watson singing Summertime and Charlie Waller and The Country Gentlemen with Theres A Star Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere the next.
Notable new releases include a song appropriate to the first week of this month, July Youre A Woman from Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen. Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Rangers released a single to radio called Me and Paul Revere for the occasion, as well!
A recent conversation with a local farmer inspired us to work a couple about farming in, with The Freight Hoppers and The Dry Branch Fire Squad providing the songs. And our gospel set will feature Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper and Bill Monroe to finish out the hour.
If you’re in Indianapolis, tune in to 88.7 on your FM dial at 9PM EASTERN during “Friday Night Folk” programming on WICR.
Not in Indy? Not a problem! The show will be posted here on the site after 6AM Saturday morning.
