Sunday, February 28 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

I'm really excited about this Sunday's edition of The Mulberry Tree, airing February 28.  I put together a playlist of songs written when the songwriter was inspired by a city in the United States.  Each song represents its own city.  There were many to choose from, but the challenge was very enjoyable to find an hour's worth of songs I thought you would appreciate.

Below are the artists to be featured, which includes Lucinda Williams, who is joined by her band in this week's sneak peek playlist…

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…
