The Folk Brothers for Feb. 22, 2023: 21st Century folks

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

The BBC recently commissioned singer-songwriters -- including Martyn Joseph, pictured here -- to pen ballads about ordinary people in northeast England who have done extraordinary things for their community. Joseph wrote "Albert's Place," a song about a soup kitchen and food bank in Sunderland run by Andrea Bell.  

Also on today's show, Brother Bill celebrates Black History Month with songs by African-American country and western singers.
