From NPR Music and WXPN, hear a live mix of roots rock, folk, country and more.
Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks join us for XPN Free at Noon at World Cafe Live.
A co-production of WXPN and NPR Music.
So few truly original figures exist in pop music that Dan Hicks should be a national treasure.
- San Francisco Chronicle
Singer-songwriter Dan Hicks is truly an American original. Since the early '60s, Hicks has blended swing, jazz, folk and country to create the appealing sound he calls "Folk Jazz." At 66, Hicks is bringing back the Hot Licks on his upcoming album Tangles Tales. With the updated version of the female backup singers, the album is a swirling mix of swing, blues and folk-jazz. A rhythmically knee-shaking collection of originals and covers alike.
In addition to the XPN Free At Noon, Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks play a full show at Sellersville Theater on Friday night April 10 at 8:30pm.
