New Settlers' Radio Hour

Saturdays at 7pm

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

Listen for Krista Detor at the Old Settlers Inn. Krista is a singer-songwriter who has performed at venues around the world – including several times at the Old Settlers Inn. She’s currently an artist in residence at the American Embassy School in New Dehli, India.  She has ventured beyond standard songwriting and is currently working on a non-traditional musical theater piece based on “The Songlines” by Bruce Chatwin.

Listen for a performance by Zoe Lewis and the Rubber Band at the Old Settlers Inn. Zoe is an English folk musician from Brighton who now lives in Massachusetts. Her shows are best described as "fun" and you'll hear everything from traditional folk tunes to ballads to world beat to vaudeville.  Her instruments include the tin whistle, guitar, piano, harmonica, ukulele, accordion, human trumpet and sometimes spoons. Her band is made up of some of the best musicians working today.

Listen for Chuck Pyle, the “Zen Cowboy of Colorado” performing at the Old Settlers Inn.  Chuck was an audience favorite, blending dry humor with truly wonderful contemporary folk tunes.
