Guests

Whistling polymath Andrew Bird has become a perennial favorite of folk-pop aficionados and classical fans alike.

Imelda May began her affair with rockabilly early on--by the time she was nine, she'd already begun to emulate Elmore James and Billie Holiday, and by the time she hit fourteen, she was onstage with a swing troupe and on screen with a fish fingers commercial.

Hailing from New York, acoustic pop sensation Julia Nunes got her start posting videos on YouTube. Playing covers from idols such as the Beatles, Ben Folds, and The Beach Boys, Nunes and her unique uke-melodica styke soon had her on stage, opening at the request of Ben Folds.

Sharon Van Etten is something of an indie darling, given her raspy, elegant vocals and penchant for deeply confessional folk rock.

World Cafe with host David Dye presents a special performance at the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, recorded in the birthplace of jazz.

Willie Nile's folk-rock career has been varied and somewhat sporadic, but despite some setbacks, he always finds his way back to the music.

Bahamas is the indie-folk sound of Afie Jurvanen. 

Philly pop-rock quintet Dr. Dog have only been getting better with time.

Drivin N Cryin's Kevn Kinney and The Golden Palominos' Anton Fier combine the country twang tendencies of their respective alternative rock bands for an album that's aptly named-- "A Good Country Mile."

The Soul Rebels could not be better named.  Formed in the 90's, the band's origins are in the New Orleans brass scene.
