  • Song Premiere: Jon Stickley Trio, "Scripting the Flip"

    "Sometimes when we are in bluegrass jams, the rhythms will accidentally get switched around and the song suddenly sounds very strange and backwards. I’ve always loved those moments and wanted them to last as long as possible. This song was written a little backwards on purpose and it made me think about the general mindset of the Trio. We embrace mistakes and like to go out on a limb and experiment with things. When we do, we try to do it with grace and the utmost respect for the art form."

  • Song Premiere: Lara Downes with Howard Fishman, "All Night, All Day"

    Downes says, “I sure am feeling this song right now, as we go to bed each night with so much uncertainty about what the next day will bring. If ever we've needed angels to watch over us, it's now. And we have to BE each other's angels, watching over each other and keeping each other safe. We have the power to guard and protect each other, and get through this crisis. This song goes out to our community with so much love. Stay safe, stay well, stay strong...”

  • Hear It First: Appalachian Road Show, 'Tribulation'

    Appalachian Road Show’s new album, 'Tribulation,' perfectly speaks to our dark and unsettling times. On the one hand, the songs embrace the trials and tribulations of uncertain days filled with despair and loss and suffering, when any glimmer of hope only dimly shines through the darkness. And, on the other hand, they celebrate the community that gathers together in the face of such tribulation to celebrate love, to dance and to sing of the possibilities of redemption, to welcome home the weary from their travails.
