The last time the Trumann Rail Boys stopped by the Carver Center for Public Radio, the folk group had recently expanded into a trio. Nearly a year later, they've added a fourth member, and are preparing to record and release their first full-ltength album. We talk about what the band has been doing, and hear a few new songs.
Brooklyn musician Shira Erlichman, musically known as just Shira, last visited us more than three years ago when she was touring through the region. She is again in the middle of a tour through the south with her partner and poet Angel Nafis, and the two are combining music and poetry during performances on what they’ve dubbed the “Odes For You Tour.” When they were in Fayetteville earlier this week, the two stopped by the Harold and Blanche Caulk Studio at KUAF.
Last week, The Too's stopped by the KUAF studios to discuss their new album, titled Outer Sounds. While they were in the studio, they played another song that predates the new work, titled "Old Songs."
