This Sunday, June 21 on The Mulberry Tree, I have the privilege of presenting an encore edition which originally aired June 19, 2016. This show is in honor of fathers, as this Sunday is Father's Day. Fatherhood takes many forms, whether you're a father to a human or animal, and if you've filled the role of both father and mother, I acknowledge you and send each song in my playlist out to you. I will be thinking of my own father, Bart, and know his spirit will be beside me. He was a music lover, and supported the same in myself and my siblings. Pull up a chair around the tree with me. We'll have a good time. You can enjoy this week's sneak peek playlist video as well, which features John Prine from way back in 1992 performing "Daddy's Little Pumpkin."
Here's the musicians and songwriters joining me this Sunday:
John and Jamie Hartford
