Mary Gauthier

Howdy, y'all.

On Thursday morning's Crooked Sisters Radio Hour, I'll be interviewing one of my favorite songwriters out there, Mary Gauthier.

Mary is not only one of the most powerful songwriters I've heard in a long, long time, she also has an amazing life story.

Greg BrownIf any one musician can be said to represent the Iowa roots music sounds, it's unarguably Greg Brown. Greg Brown joins Lauryn Shapter for a conversation about life in rural Iowa, music, song writing, his lovely wife Iris, and what being in the music "business" for the better part of four decades has meant to this self-described "old boy" from Iowa.  One of our fair state's truly great songwriters, Greg has managed to land himself firmly among the more respected artists of his generation while still living a quiet life on a gravel road in rural Iowa.  Listen in to find out more about this unique and brilliantly talented song writer.
