Folk Alley Radio Show #231019

This week on Folk Alley, join Elena See to celebrate October with music by Bill Staines and Robin & Linda Williams; plus, some spooky tunes from The Secret Sisters and Brandi Carlile to get us in the Halloween spirit. We’ll spend some time with songs by the great Lucinda Williams from Amos Lee, The Tallest Man On Earth, and Emmylou Harris; and there’s new music too from Hannah Read and Iron & Wine.

In hour two, it’s more new music from Kelly Hunt, Charlie Mars, John R. Miller, No-No Boy, and Alice Gerrard; plus favorites from Ben Sollee & Daniel Martin Moore, Keller & The Kells, Donna the Buffalo, Margo Cilker, and John Craigie; a classic from the great John Prine; and much more.
