We'll listen to a couple of sessions that will be represented by tracks on our brand new Crowd Around The Mic Vol 21, and this show is a perfect example of the wide variety of music available on the two-cd compilation. We'll dive into the new wave techno sound of Lotus in Studio B this past January, and we'll sample some traditional Italian folk music by Mike Guggino and Barrett Smith in a session originally  broadcast from Isis Music Hall in Asheville.
