This week on Folk Alley, love is in the air. We celebrate Valentine’s Day with love songs and “matters of the heart” from some of our favorite folk, roots, and Americana couples. Hear from Buddy & Julie Miller, The War and Treaty, Pharis & Jason Romero, Hayes Carll & Allison Moorer, Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, Jeffrey Foucault & Kris Delmhorst, The Honey Dewdrops, Johnny & June, and more.

In hour two, the love continues with music from Iris DeMent, Greg Brown, Kate Wolf, Emmylou Harris & Mark Knopfler, Nanci Griffith, Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett, David Francey, and Rose Cousins; plus new music from The High Hawks, Jim Kweskin, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, and more.

(** For more, this February in honor of Valentine’s Day, listen to Folk Alley’s special 6+ hour ‘Matters of the Heart’ playlist streaming now in the Holiday Music channel. Listen her on the website or on your Alexa-enabled smart speaker by saying, “Alexa, ask Folk Alley to play Holiday Music.”)
