The Folk Brothers for Jan. 5, 2022: Source To Sea

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

Julie Fowlis' new digital EP "Source To Sea" comprises three songs she wrote for a new podcast of the same name. The cohosts -- Lee Cragie and Jenny Graham -- travelled the length of the rivers Dee, Tay, and Clyde by foot, mountain bike, and pack raft, recording their interactions with the natural world they encountered on their journies. For her tracks, Fowlis used prose from Nan Shepherd's The Living Mountain, a memoir of time spent in the wilds of the Scottish highlands.

On today's show, we played "Silver In Blue," Fowlis' ode to the River Clyde, plus new tracks from TRU, Talisk, Matt Stevens, Robert Plant, and Allison Krauss. And much more!
