Each Friday at 12n, we bring you an up close and personal visit with a special artist. This year has been a banner year with tons of returning favorites like Josh Ritter, The Felice Brothers and more. Plus, we've seen some first time visits from great artists like Martin Sexton and Tommy Castro.
One of the hallmarks of WEXT and this series, of course, is the music discoveries. This year, Alan Lee Tasjan, Kelly Waldon, Becky Warren and others have come to let us know they are out there making music.
Meet Boo Ray, a singer-songwriter from the hills of Western North Carolina. He splits his time between Nashville, Athens, GA and Los Angeles (when not on tour). On his way through the northeast, Boo and his band stopped by. They broke it down in a near string-band style for us. Check them out!
Kaia Kater's new album is "Nine Pin." In this session, she plays a few songs, talks about how old-time music became a part of her life, and more. Hear the session below, and below that see the songs in video form.
