Songwriter and performer Meg Baird shares some recent music.

With roots that reach back to the folk songs collected by her great-great uncle I. G. Greer, Meg Baird writes songs that blend reassuring traditions with modern uncertainties, creating music that's engrossing and disquieting. Meg first performed on the show as member of the band Espers in 2004, and host David Garland welcomes her back for a set of original songs as well as a few well-chosen covers.
