Easy to Be Around

Symphonic strings with Arabic and western voices, lilting songs with mbira accompaniment, a minimalist improvisation for banjo and harmonica, songs by a young New Orleans-based songwriter, a roiling instrumental for 12-string guitar, and Diane Cluck's song "Easy to Be Around" played by her, and arranged and transformed by DM Stith -- Host David Garland shares some of the recordings he's been enjoying lately, including music by Jocelyn Pook, Loren Murrell, Uncle Woody Sullender & Seamus Cater, Laura Barrett, Glenn Jones, and others.
