This Sunday, March 8 on The Mulberry Tree, I begin a four-part series acknowledging the 50 United States in song. Each of the songs you’ll hear over the next several weeks represents in some way one of the states, beginning with Jason Isbell’s “Alabama Pines,” a song included with his collection “Here We Rest” and the subject of this week’s sneak peek playlist video.
Here’s a list of musicians and songwriters who will be contributing to this week’s edition of the tree. Hope you can meet me there!
Ozark Mountain Daredevils
Doc Watson and David Grisman
Steve Forbert and the Rough Squirrels
