Certainly one of the most anticipated Americana releases of this early new year, Aoife O’Donovan’s Age Of Apathy arrives this Friday from Yep Roc Records. The songwriter has been vividly visible in recent years, recording and touring with the elite Goat Rodeo Sessions ensemble while her trio I’m With Her won Grammy and Americana awards. But in Episode 195 of The String, we focus on her first new solo album since In The Magic Hour six years ago.
  • A new entrant into the fast-growing, backlogged record pressing business found a historic home in Asheville, NC that's let it become an anchor in the community and an entire musical ecosystem. Visitors to Citizen Vinyl in the 1939 Asheville Citizen Times newspaper building can watch records get made while they sip drinks, eat farm-to-table food, and shop for vinyl and art. Craig visited last fall and CEO Gar Ragland showed him around for this audio special report.
  • Join WMOT just before the weekend for the return of Finally Friday. We're still streaming artists from their home bases, but we're approaching the return of live shows from the new Eastside Bowl in Madison. This week's guests, Rob Aldridge and the Proponents, plus Lord Nelson.
  • Formed in the mid 2000s in Nashville, the Infamous Stringdusters executed one of roots music's most successful pivots. Their foundation was traditional bluegrass, but when that scene proved confining, they looked west to Colorado and the broader values of the jamgrass world. In Episode 194 of The String, Craig speaks with banjo player Chris Pandolfi, dobro player Andy Hall and guitarist Andy Falco about the odyssey of the Dusters on the eve of the band's tenth album Toward The Fray, due Feb. 18.
