This week on Folk Alley, we revisit "Folk Alley's 100 Most Essential Folk Songs," compiled from a survey of our listeners. Hear favorites from Joan Baez, Phil Ochs, Donovan, and Joni Mitchell; then see how Folk Alley listeners voted as we count down the top ten most essential folk songs.
In hour two, new music from Freddie & Francine, Sunny War, Steve Earle, and Lori McKenna; we'll hear the last song John Prine recorded before his passing; an exclusive Folk Alley recording of Brown Bird from the 2012 Green River Festival; and favorites from Eric Bibb & Maria Muldaur, William Prince, Kaia Kater, The Band, and more.
Folk Alley can be heard Saturdays at noon on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Download the FREE KRCB App @ iTunes & Google Play!
