A Beautiful Symphony of Brotherhood: A Musical Journey in the Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Airs Sunday, January 19 at 6 p.m. In this hour-long special host Terrance McKnight interweaves musical examples with Dr. King's own speeches and sermons to illustrate the powerful place that music held in his work--and examines how the musical community responded to and participated in Dr. King's cause.  Martin Luther King grew up listening to and singing church songs, and saw gospel and folk music as natural tools to further the civil rights movement.

Harvest Home

Airs Thursday, November 22 at 8:00 p.m.   Festive, thoughtful and fun, Harvest Home is hosted by renowned folk duo Jay Ungar & Molly Mason and celebrates Thanksgiving, Autumn and the Harvest Season with a spicy offering of American Roots Music simmered to perfection. This program has become something of a tradition for many stations across the country for the Thanksgiving season.  The songs featured are “hand picked” by Jay and Molly from their vast archive of traditional and historical American recordings from a wide range of artists.  The songs all have a theme of autumn, Thanksgiving, and of course food!  This year’s show features performances by Robert Johnson, Chet Atkins, Vassar Clements, The Duhks, Bill Monroe, Pete Seeger, Robin and Linda Williams, Merle Haggard, Jay & Molly themselves, and others.  All hosted with the “down home” flavor for which the couple are famous.

Savannah Music Festival: Sarah Jarosz

Airs Thursday, August 9 at 8:00 p.m.  Few musical communities have proven more nurturing of emerging talent than bluegrass and its acoustic tributaries. In part this is because precocious youth has proved a wise investment, as evidenced by former teenage virtuosos such as Marty Stuart, Alison Krauss and Chris Thile. But mostly this is because the players themselves are drawn together by their innate love of the music, and by a common quest for new ways to play it. In this episode, we listen to Sarah Jarosz playing with violinist Alex Hargreaves and cellist Nathaniel Smith.
