Bennett and Perkins are a singer-songwriter duo from New Hampshire's North Country with two CDs under their belts and a new one in process.

They stopped by The Folk Show for a Sunday preview of an upcoming benefit for the Way Station and MWV Supports Recovery in North Conway on Jan. 25 with Taylor Whiteside.


Emma's Revolution is out with their newest album, Revolution Now.

It's been called "vital" and "relevant," and the band is described as, "Beauty, power and ferocity all mixed together with love and hope."

Timely Words For Pete Seeger

More than a musician, folk legend Pete Seeger influenced generations of Americans through both song and activism, often using one to fuel the message of the other. The power he invested in music helped promote his peaceful messages. Recently, producer Zach Nugent spoke to Nick Panken of the band Spirit Family Reunion. Nick had some timely praise for the folk singer who recently died:
