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 week's sneak peek playlist video with "The Parting Glass," a traditional tune performed flawlessly in three-part harmony.
