  • Raised on mountain music in Galax, VA, Dori Freeman has spent four albums exploring an ever more personal and catchy take on Appalachian country music. Her newest, Ten Thousand Roses, was produced by her husband, a drummer, as its beat-forward feel shows.
  • It’s an arresting, almost accusatory title, spilling in cartoonish letters down the right margin of Tim Easton’s tenth studio album. You Don’t Really Know Me. I don’t? I’ve been listening to Easton’s songs for twenty years, appreciating the variety of his musical moods, hearing his lyrics, learning his unusual story. I mean, Tim, you’re the storyteller. What haven’t you been telling us?
  • Summer 2021 has come and gone, and as we take stock of memories of that precious season of renewal and relative freedom, few among us will have better stories than Nashville’s Lindsay Lou. In late July, work, play and worship became indistinguishable when the singer and songwriter was part of the exclusive talent lineup for RiverWonderGrass, multi-day excursions down ancient and wild western rivers with little but life’s essentials - food, shelter and live acoustic music.
