Miss this past week's Local 518 Show? Don't panic! Andy's show is available to listen to here.

Chris Kyle
Artist

Chris Kyle, who first came to us as part of Railbird - and more recently LIP TALK, has played with Sean Rowe, and many of the great Local 518s.  Plus, he's toured as part of The Duhks, and likely there is a lot more we are missing in our excitement to share his new single with you.  

"Falling in Circles" comes from a forthcoming record called "Air Jacket."  Chris, we cannot wait to hear more! And of course to play this on the radio! 

Birds of Chicago
WEXT

The husband and wife duo of Allison Russell and JT Nero dropped by on their way to Caffe Lena.  They brought the band, and played songs as Birds of Chicago.

We talked about the EP, "American Flowers," and the forthcoming album, "Love in Wartime."

The Ballroom Thieves
WEXT

Boston-based The Ballroom Thieves were making their way across to Rochester for a show, and on their way, they stopped by to play songs from the new EP, "Paper Crown," and to talk about music.  We learned that the band met while searching on Tinder. OK, that part is not true, but...  You just never know who might be at an open mic.  You'd be well served to stop by one sometime.

Sawyer Fredericks Live @ EXT
WEXT

Sawyer Fredericks began playing around the area, busking on Saratoga streets, playing the Caffe Lena Open Mic. Then he rocketed to fame with a win on the reality show The Voice.  At just 17 years old, you might be quick to dismiss his rapid rise, but if you did, you would certainly miss out.

Del McCoury and David Grisman
Artist

Del & Dawg - Del McCoury and David Grisman - are back in town Saturday, March 3rd. This time they're playing at The Egg.  We have some tickets and would love to send you to the show.
