I'm Michel Martin, and this is TELL ME MORE, from NPR News. Coming up: Why did the Oscar-winning filmmaker of "The Hobbit" devote his time, money and moviemaking skills to an entirely different project about a long-ago crime in Arkansas? We'll speak with Peter Jackson and one of the men featured in a new documentary "West of Memphis." That's in just a few minutes.
I'm Michel Martin and this is TELL ME MORE from NPR News. Now I would like to tell you about a special performer, someone many people have called one of a kind. She is a native Washingtonian. She fuses pop, R&B and hip-hop and she does all that while accompanying herself on an instrument you don't see very often in contemporary music - her harp.
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "THERE'S NO ONE ELSE LIKE YOU")
Tune in Thursday night as we feature one of our favorite new acts and releases, the debut from Scotland's Snowgoose. Comprised of members of Teenage Fanclub, the Soup Dragons, and Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan's band, Snowgoose is fronted by vocalist Anna Sheard, who makes her performing debut (so far as we know) with this band. Influences also include early '70's British folk-rock groups like Fairport Convention, and West Coast American sounds as well. This new release from a new discovery is already a Top 100 pick among WNCW listeners!
