Episode #1613
Lisa Biales and The Barefoot Movement
Lisa Biales who is known for her clear-as-a-bell singing voice, has been dubbed, fittingly, "Belle of the Blues." This Ohio native over the past several years has been busy recording and singing the Blues. She released her 9th album which has been nominated for a Blues Blast Music Award for Acoustic Blues Album. Francis Ford Coppola enjoyed a Lisa Biales performance so much so that he cast her in his film, "Twixt," where Biales portrays a waitress named Ruth (and *Bonus) she picks up the guitar and sings. The Barefoot Movement have been making waves in the folk world since the release of their 2011 debut album. Hailing from Johnson City, Tennessee, this ensemble mixes original and traditional numbers, complete with all the elements that make up the Barefoot sound: lush harmonies, thoughtful instrumentation, and memorable melodies. The band are award winners at the 2013 Telluride Bluegrass Festival and were asked by the American Embassy to perform in Burkina Faso, Africa. The band has just released a new EP of traditional songs they sing in concert that are fan favorites.

Episode #1612
Gaelic Storm and Billy Strings & Don Julin
Gaelic Storm blends indie-folk and world grooves with Celtic tradition. The group's ability to deftly incorporate a rock sensibility into their sound affords them rare crossover appeal. In recent years, they've performed on the same bill with acts ranging from Zac Brown Band and the Goo Goo Dolls to Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett, at events as varied as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Milwaukee's Summerfest. With catalog sales of more than 1 million, the group has now had four consecutive albums debut at #1 on the Billboard World Albums Chart. The band is celebrating 10 years of music with a new best of CD titled 'Full Irish'. Billy Strings & Don Julin play traditional American string band music with energy levels usually associated with extreme sports. A typical set includes haunting Appalachian songs, righteous gospel standards, and blazing bluegrass instrumentals. Honoring the musical traditions of Doc Watson, Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley, and Jimmy Martin, these boys will take you back to that high lonesome sound of yesterday's bluegrass. This is your grandaddy's bluegrass delivered with a pedal to the metal intensity of a moonshine runner. Their latest is 'Fiddle Tune X'.
