Folk Alley Radio Show #230720

This week on Folk Alley, join Elena See for new music from Rufus Wainwright in celebration of his 50th birthday (7/22); we’ll say happy birthday to Emily Saliers and Alison Krauss too, and remember the late great Steve Goodman on what would’ve been his 75th. Plus, there’s more new music from Molly Tuttle and Golden Highway, Nora Brown & Stephanie Coleman, and Lori McKenna.

In hour two, hear advance singles from forthcoming albums by Rhiannon Giddens, Margo Cilker, and Teddy Thompson; new music from Ben Harper, First Aid Kit, Jason Isbell, Adeem the Artist, and Miles Miller, from his debut album; plus favorites from The Revelers, Jake Blount, Sturgill Simpson, Samantha Crain, and more.
