We've loved Shannon McNally's soulful blend of folk, country, blues and rock since her 2002 album Jukebox Sparrows. Last year's Black Irish featured strong collaborations with Rodney Crowell, and an eclectic roster of covers. She is currently on tour with a powerful new (to us) soul singer named Erin Costelo, and we can't wait to get to know her when they visit Studio B on their way to Charlotte for their double-bill at The Evening Muse. Erin's new album Down Below, the Status Quo is our "New Tunes at 2" feature on Tuesday.

We'll rewind all the way back to 1999 for a session with Alvin Youngblood Hart, who had just won the WC Handy Award for best new blues artist. We'll also listen to banjo greats Bill Evans and Alan Munde in our studio last summer plus an exclusive interview with Richard Thompson recorded live backstage at Bonnaroo in 2007, where he also performed a few tunes from his latest album at the time, “Sweet Warrior.” Join Host Kim Clark every Sunday at 7pm for Studio B Rewind.
