Our guests this week on Art of the Song are award-winning Texas performing songwriters Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne. Adler and Hearne tour nationally, serving up original homegrown music in a spirited and soulful genre they define simply as "Texas Folk,” with subtle jazz and blues overtones. They are currently on tour in support of their new CD “Second Nature,” produced by Texas music icon Lloyd Maines. The duo was honored by the Texas Commission on the Arts, being named to the state’s official Touring Roster. [visit Adler & Hearne's website]

Our guests this week on Art of the Song are Rosanne Cash, and her husband/collaborator John Leventhal. The eldest daughter of country music icon, Johnny Cash, Rosanne has had an illustrious career of her own, with 21 top 40 country hits including 11 number ones. We spoke with Rosanne and John about the current album, The River and the Thread, a historic landscape of the American South. The album’s unique sound, which draws from country, blues, gospel, and rock, reflects the soulful mix of music that traces its history to the region.



This week on Art of the Song we visit with award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter, David Francey. A native of Scotland, Francey immigrated to Canada with his family at age 12. After spending much of his life as a carpenter, he began a career in folk music, quickly making a name for himself on the folk festival circuit, where he continues to perform. David's experiences in working-class life strongly influence his writing. Other musical themes include admiration of the natural beauty of the Canadian landscape, and traditional folk themes of love and loss. We interviewed David as a part of the Concerts and Conversations series with AMP Concerts in Albuquerque.
