Our encore broadcast schedule continues this week with west coast Bluegrass music pioneer Laurie Lewis and her band, performing songs from throughout her storied career. As our Song of the Week, we’ve chosen Lewis’ “Trees.”

We also welcomed back Maya de Vitry, whose introspective songs have a charm that must be heard to be believed.

Elsewhere on this episode are Bill and the Belles with a modernized vintage roots sound, Kentucky-born songwriter Tiffany Williams, and the old-time influenced singers, songwriters and instrumentalists known as The Early Mays.

They all join host Kathy Mattea on this week’s encore broadcast, heard on these stations starting Friday, June 30 or on our Mountain Stage podcast here.
