This coming Sunday, January 10, please join me in honoring and celebrating the life of Carolyn Huber, who was the original host of The Mulberry Tree for 26 years before retiring in 2009.  She passed the torch to me that year, and now 11 years later, Carolyn has passed away, and it's time to give her a fitting acknowledgement and musical sendoff.  Below are the musicians and songwriters who will add magic to Carolyn's tribute show.  The list includes the Wailin Jennys who are highlighted in this…

Hello,

Happy New Year 2021 from The Mulberry Tree! I thought a great way to begin the new year would be to acknowledge how the month of January usually gifts us with cold, wintry weather here in the Ozarks. I've got a wide variety of songs about the snow, ice, cold temperatures,etc.ready for us to enjoy.  I hope you'll be able to join me and that you have a place to  be warm and comfortable.  Even if you live alone, you are never alone when you're around the tree with me.  Let's enjoy the music together…

*DUE TO A PROGRAMMING ERROR, THIS SHOW DID NOT AIR AND HAS A NEW AIR DATE OF JANUARY 27, 2021*

Hello,

On Sunday, December 13, I've got four songs ready for my first set that were written by John Lennon.  I do this in acknowledgement of the 40th anniversary of his passing.  It's amazing to think he would be 80 years old today.  This week's sneak peek playlist video is a wonderful video of songwriter Shelby Lynne performing the title track to her release "Revelation Road."

Sunday, December 6 on The Mulberry Tree

Sunday, November 22 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

Thanksgiving is on  my mind for this coming Sunday's Mulberry Tree, airing November 22.  I've also got songs lined up that will help us reflect on things for which we can be grateful.  Most of us will continue to be separated at a time of year when we're gathering together, so perhaps sitting around the tree together will give us all a sense of connection.  Below are the musicians and songwriters to be featured, which includes Lyle Lovett.  Lyle is the highlighted musician for this week's sneak peek…
