Episode #1506
Amy Ray and John Fullbright
AMY RAY is the Decatur, Georgia songwriter best known as half of the Grammy-winning Indigo Girls folk-rock duo. Amy has always been a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll but her upcoming solo release 'Goodnight Tender', on Ray's own Decatur-based imprint, will be a career first for her -- a pure country music album. The songs were written over more than a decade and she sings movingly about dogs, pills, Duane Allman and heartache. Amy will appear on WoodSongs with her country band. JOHN FULLBRIGHT was born in Bearden, Oklahoma and went to school in nearby Okemah, also the hometown of Woody Guthrie. It was at the annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival that John first started to make a name for himself in the picking circles on the festival campgrounds. In 2009, John burst upon the southwest music scene and started to earn comparisons to great songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman. His debut album two years ago earned the Oklahoma native a Grammy nomination for 'Best Americana Album'. He just released his follow up LP titled 'Songs'.

Nrbq and Sundy Best
NRBQ is the legendary roots rock band formed by pianist Terry Adams in his Louisville, KY home. The band released its self-titled debut album for Columbia Records in 1969. Forty-five years later, after more than 20 studio albums, more than a dozen live albums and numerous compilations, not to mention countless, and legendary, live performances around the world, NRBQ will release a new studio album, 'Brass Tacks'. Recorded with Terry Adams on keyboards and vocals, Scott Ligon on guitar and vocals, Conrad Choucroun on drums and Casey McDonough on bass and vocals, 'Brass Tacks' is brimming with swinging rhythms, sweet vocals, and sparkling sound. The dozen new tunes, served up in the unique Q mix of pop, rock, jazz, country, and more. SUNDY BEST crafts music that re-imagines timeless classic rock of the '70s and '80s - think the Eagles and the smart, whiskey-voiced lyrics of Tom Petty and Bob Seger. With Nick on guitar and Kris on cajon, Sundy Best takes that sound, modernizes it in their own unique way by borrowing hints of country and bluegrass, to make it personal. This duo began as a high energy Lexington, Kentucky bar act. As kids coming up together in Eastern Kentucky, they played music in church and formed their own band in high school. Now the band has just released their new album 'Bring Up The Sun', performed on the Grand Ole Opry and made quite an impression on many over the past few months as they have traveled beyond the borders of their Kentucky home to hit the national touring circuit.

Episode #1510
Baskery and Willie Sugarcapps
BASKERY is a trio of sisters from Sweeden that's all about turning the music on its head, blending the straightforwardness of punk with the subtlety of singer/songwriting. The music is not to be confused with country or bluegrass just because the instrumentation involves a double bass, a six string banjo and acoustic guitar. The band makes their WoodSongs debut playing material from 'Little Wild Life'. Expect the sounds of "banjopunk", "new folk", "nordicana", an energetic live show and killer sibling harmonies. WILLIE SUGARCAPPS collective musical experiences mingle together to create a new kind of organic and artisanal music. Born out of a music gathering in lower Alabama, Grayson Capps, Corky Hughes, Will Kimbrough and the duo Sugarcane Jane (featuring Savana Lee and Anthony Crawford) led to the birth of the band. The band's Self-Titled debut is laid back, it rocks, it comes from classic country, from the blues, from New Orleans and from the best kind of rock 'n' roll. It tells a story through five individual voices full of character and experience with humanity, energy and soul.

Judy Collins and Ari Hest
JUDY COLLINS has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century. This folk icon's will be performing material from her latest release 'Live in Ireland' including a breathtaking version of "Danny Boy" to close the WoodSongs broadcast.
