Sunday, June 20 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

My playlist for the June 20 edition of The Mulberry Tree will include a couple of themes:  Father's Day and welcoming the arrival of the summer solstice.  Please join me and the following musicians and songwriters as we spend an hour together around the tree.  Included in the list below is Lori McKenna, who performs this week's sneak peek playlist video "When You're My Age" from her most recent album "The Balladeer."  This song seems like the perfect message and piece of advice I imagine a father or…

Sunday, June 6 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

I had a lot of fun putting the June 6 Mulberry Tree together for us to enjoy.  I'll never get tired of the challenge to compose a playlist that truly takes us for a musical ride for an hour.  For me, it's not just a list of songs I throw together, they have to make sense as a compilation, and leave you with the feeling you've been on a journey.  The journey I have planned for us for this episode includes John Prine's "You Got Gold" as my sneak peek playlist video. Hope to meet you around the tree.

Sunday, May 2 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

I'll play tracks from some of my favorite songwriters on the May 2 edition of The Mulberry Tree.  The list includes George Harrison, because I was gifted with a dream of him recently where he treated me with the utmost kindness and humility.  Who knows why we dream, how we dream, and understanding that not all people dream makes me even more grateful for the "visit" from my favorite Beatle.  This weeks sneak peek playlist video is the lovely trio Red Molly performing "Sing to Me," part of their…

Sunday, April 25 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

I begin The Mulberry Tree on Sunday, April 25 with a song written by Rusty Young, former member of the band Poco, who passed away recently, and suddenly.  I am grateful for all the years I was able to enjoy Rusty's musicianship and humble appreciation for those who followed his career.  He truly was one of the best. Ray LaMontagne's song "You are the Best Thing" seems to be a fitting song for this week's sneak peek playlist video.  That track is part of Ray's "Gossip in the Grain" album.  Hope to…
