Tonight on New Sounds, folk music re-imagined. Hear old music, but rearranged and connected with other genres, to make surprisingly new folk music. Listen to Sam Lee and Friends arranging folk songs from the British travelers community, Kaia Kater's Appalachian folk music. Then Sam Amidon sings an Anglo-American folk song, and the Furrow Collective offer up a Scottish folk song, and more.
