ILONA
Artist

Our good friend ILONA, the Bulgarian singer in London, has polished up a new song and video. In "Sing For You," she breaks our heart as she puts voice to the feelings she had after learning of a longtime, close friend's death by suicide. Our thoughts go out to ILONA and the young woman's family. 

Beginning at 7 p.m. EDT on Thursday, May 19, watch folk-pop band The Head And The Heart, new collaborators Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop, garage-country singer Aubrie Sellers and more perform at World Cafe Live as part of Philadelphia's 2016 Non-COMMvention.

The show is streaming live on VuHaus, a website that publishes studio sessions and concerts from public-radio stations across the country. Find the complete line-up below.

firekid is Dillon Hodges. Dillon learned to play guitar from his neighbor.  His neighbor said he couldn't teach him how to play the pop rock music in the books he brought. He said "I'm a bluegrass musician. That's what I can teach you."  In Athens, AL, there isn't much call for bluegrass music, but Dillon learned.  And then he went on to win a national flatpick guitar contest in Oklahoma at a festival.
