Sunday, April 28: Susie Burke

As one of the original hosts of NHPR’s The Folk Show, Susie Burke is also well known as one half of the duo that included her late husband, David Surette. She'll be stopping by the studio to chat about the upcoming David Surette Mandolin Festival happening May 3-5 at The Dance Hall in Kittery, Maine, and at The Concord Community Music, in Concord, N.H.

Sunday, May 5: Ordinary Elephant

Ordinary Elephant is the duo of Crystal and Pete Damore. Their breakout album Before I Go won the International Folk music award for Artist of the Year. Since then they've toured the Northeast and will be launching the release of their new self titled album. Ordinary Elephant will stop by The Folk Show for a lively in-studio jam before heading south on their tour.

Sunday, May 26: Grace Morrison

Grace Morrison is a lot of things. She's a storyteller, singer songwriter, Renaissance Faire performer and even a cranberry grower! She's got a new album called Maybe Modern that's getting a lot of attention. We'll catch her for a few songs and conversation when she takes a quick break from the road to gear up for her Colorado tour.
