Paul Simon has a new album coming out and it's wonderful. Titled Stranger To Stranger, it's his thirteenth solo release and he told me he it could be his last, at least for a while. For this week's +1 podcast, I sat with Paul Simon at NPR's New York bureau to talk about the new record, but more specifically to talk about a single song on the album, the puzzling and quirky opening cut, "The Werewolf."

Remembering Country Craftsman Guy Clark

May 17, 2016

Grammy winner, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member and Academy of Country Music Poet's Award honoree Guy Clark has died at 74 after a long battle with illness. Born in Monahans, Texas, Clark was exposed mainly to mariachi music until he moved to Houston and worked the folk-music circuit. It was there that he developed his own style of blues-infused folk-country, and in 1975, he released his debut album, Old No. 1.

Carrie Rodriguez has been many things: a classically trained violinist turned American fiddler, a duet partner to veteran songwriter Chip Taylor, a successful and popular solo artist in her own right. On occasion, those roles have allowed her Mexican-American roots to bubble to the surface — perhaps in a line sung in Spanish, or through a reference to a classic mariachi song.
