Matt Flinner Trio

The Matt Flinner Trio has been making stops in the area with our friends at Wolf Hollow Brewing and The Cock N Bull Restaurant.  Their brand of roots music is quite interesting and very exciting to listen to, and to witness in person, it is downright magical.

In celebration of the recent album, "Traveling Roots," we had them play a few songs and we talked about music, and Matt's stint as a bluegrass DJ as a teen with his father in Salt Lake City.

I'm so happy to share our latest session with David Crosby. He made me howl with laughter, he's got so much heart, and he was truly generous in sharing his stories. Crosby is here to talk about his new album, Sky Trails, which features some of his contemporary collaborators — Becca Stevens, Michelle Willis, Mai Agan, and Michael League of Snarky Puppy. But we covered a lot of ground on Crosby's formative cronies, too, including The Byrds, Crosby Stills & Nash, Miles Davis, Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell.

Willie Watson feels his way through America's musical history by sliding an old bottleneck against the strings of his acoustic guitar. He finds it in the grain of his own voice, cultivated over 20 years of singing old songs his own way. First as a founding member of Old Crow Medicine Show and now in his own solo career, Watson has brought folk-based roots music alive for new listeners in the 21st century.
