New Settlers' Radio Hour

Saturdays at 7pm

Lu Anne Stephens brings you recordings of the best acoustic performers in local venues.

Saturday, June 24

Fun, poetic, gritty and wonderful. It's Greg Brown recorded at the Old Settlers Inn. Greg is the founder of Red House Records, has received a plethora of folkie-and-indie type awards and his tunes have been covered by Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin and countless others. Like most singer-songwriters, he's best when performing live in a small setting ­ like the Old Settlers Inn.

This week it's Easily Amused – Canadian singer/songwriters with an alt-rock edge. They’ve been around for well over a decade and now go by Keith and Renee – this recording was made fairly early in their career.  They are fresh, friendly, hip and oh-so-talented.

This week we'll hear Celtic music star Aiofe Clancy and her band at the Old Settlers Inn.

Enjoy a rare performance by The Sherpas - a contemporary folk group made up of three excellent singer-songwriters: Tom Kimmell, Tom Prasada-Rao and Michael Lille, recorded at the Old Settlers Inn. Great songwriting, great harmonies, great taunts – listen this Saturday and you’ll see what I mean.

Here’s an example:
