Guests

Peter Gabriel is one of the best-known names on the planet when it comes to prog rock.

St. Vincent is the stage name for multi-instrumentalist, indie queen, Annie Clark.

Today's World Cafe session is an exciting double-header, featuring two well-known folk acts with strong ties. San Francisco's Vetiver, led by psychedelic folkster Andy Cabic, has often featured the lead singer of the other band today, The Fruit Bat's Eric Johnson.

While many might drive themselves mad by remaining isolated during three rough winter months in Wisconsin, Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver) translated this retreat into a masterful album.

The legend of Zach Condon and Beirut is the stuff of the classic American indie music dream. 

Hailing from Brooklyn and drawing comparisons to artists as diverse as Grizzly Bear and Prince, Milagres is band that knows how to combine ambience with flair, the coolest of indie rock with classical guitars.

This episode of World Cafe features a local band that's been gaining a lot of buzz, both here and across the pond.

Hailing from West Texas and now residing in Nashville, fiddler and songstress Amanda Shires has been building up her music resume for quite some time.

The English singer-songwriter, bass guitarist and producer Nick Lowe began his recording career in 1966 as part of the Kippington Lodge, a blues and country rock group.

It isn't often that a well known actor of the caliber and fame of Jeff Bridges successfully (commercially and critically) crosses into another medium, mainly music.
