Listening Lyrics May 1, 2015, 4:00PM with Steve Kahn

Tune in for some great banter and music, also learn what a "red diaper" baby means. A review in Midwest Records recently described Steve Kahn as “a singer/songwriter that knows well from whence he speaks, (who sings) easy rolling, back porch music with rough edges that play well without sanding.”   An award-winning, singer/songwriter, Steve was a part of the Sonoma County folk renaissance in the 1970's and 80's.  He has shared the stage with performers ranging from Kate Wolf and Hoyt Axton to Dave Nachmanoff, David Maloney, Hugh Shacklett, Dick Holdstock and Allan MacLeod.  He performs throughout Northern California and the West.  He has recorded three albums and was recently recognized by the International Song Writer’s Association for his song, “Nothing but the Wind.”  Steve’s songs reflect the lives, solitary struggles, and the improbable triumphs of the people he has met in his work and his travels throughout the Western United States.  (Photo by VIP Studios, Davis, CA)
