On Sunday, January 31, I'll open the program with a song that has helped power me through the challenges of this past year that included a pandemic, political chaos, and separation from family, friends and performing music with my band mates. That song is "The Tunnel" from My Politic, a song written by Kaston Guffey. My list of musicians and songwriters below who will be featured on the program includes The Cactus Blossoms, who are Minneapolis-based brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey. I chose their song "Powder Blue" as this week's sneak peek playlist video. Hope to meet you around the tree!
