Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer, two 5-String fiddle players from Nashville have been making waves, both on their own and recently as 10 String Symphony.

The Nell Robinson & Jim Nunnally Band
WEXT

Hillary Perkins, a.k.a. Nell Robinson met Jim Nunnally at a jam. Pretty quickly, they realized they share musical thoughts. The two embarked on their next journey, which has resulted in a couple albums, a cool concept show, and the latest recording, "Baby, Let's Take The Long Way Home."

Nell and Jim have teamed up with Jon Arkin (percussion) and Jim Kerwin (bass) to form the band that stopped by our studios on Friday (9/15/17). 

Chris Wienk with Wanda Fischer of WAMC
WEXT

One of my favorite DJ's is Wanda Fischer. She has this way on the radio that makes you feel like you've been friends forever. She is a true treasure. So, when I heard that Wanda was about to celebrate her 35th year as our Saturday night companion on WAMC's Hudson River Sampler, I thought I had to get her over to talk about some of those memories and have her play some of her favorite songs.

Happy 35th anniversary, Wanda!

Stores From NPR Music

In this special episode, we're having a listening party inspired by Turning the Tables, NPR Music's list of 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women. It was spearheaded by Ann Powers, our Nashville correspondent. She joins us — along with Alisa Ali from WFUV in New York City, Andrea Swensson from The Current in Minneapolis, and me, Talia Schlanger — to focus on a couple important records from that list that came out in the '90s.

Watch Lo Moon Play 'This Is It' In 360 Degrees

17 hours ago

Lo Moon's carefully crafted dream-pop songs have made them one of Los Angeles' most exciting bands to watch. Get inside KCRW's studios with a virtual reality performance of the group's shimmering single, "This Is It."

Over the past couple of years, Big Thief has quickly gained a passionate and devoted fan base with a rare, quiet force.

Appearing to come out of nowhere last year with its critically hailed, and aptly titled debut, Masterpiece, the band has already taken a quantum leap on its fast (and also aptly titled) follow-up, Capacity. Indeed, Adrianne Lenker's solo performance and conversation at WFUV gave us the rare opportunity to get an intimate glimpse of the vulnerability she wields in powerful ways.
