Some contemporary compositions with firm roots in the folk music of Scotland, Italy, and France are on this edition of New Sounds. Hear the twisted folk-rock of the Scottish group Tartan Amoebas, along with Cajun music from Beausoleil, and Italian music by BEV. Plus, we'll sample tunes from fiddler Darol Anger’s Heritage project in which American folk songs are reworked; one even features the legendary raspy voice of Mavis Staples.
