Folk Alley Radio Show #231109

This week on Folk Alley, join Elena See for a rebroadcast of a show first heard in November, 2022 with music from Ruthie Foster, Buffalo Nichols, Assorted Orchids, and Slaid Cleaves; a classic from the great Bert Jansch; and favorites from Mavis Staples & Levon Helm, The Wailin’ Jennys, and Eliza Gilkyson. All this, plus we wish Neil Young a happy birthday.

In hour two, more music from Golden Shoals, Sunny War, Carolyn Kendrick, and The Lone Bellow; we celebrate the 31st anniversary of Iris DeMent’s debut album, ‘Infamous Angel’; and in honor of Veterans Day, we dig into the Folk Alley Sessions archives with music from Mary Gauthier, and more.
