Thanksgiving is on my mind for this coming Sunday's Mulberry Tree, airing November 22. I've also got songs lined up that will help us reflect on things for which we can be grateful. Most of us will continue to be separated at a time of year when we're gathering together, so perhaps sitting around the tree together will give us all a sense of connection. Below are the musicians and songwriters to be featured, which includes Lyle Lovett. Lyle is the highlighted musician for this week's sneak peek playlist video where you can enjoy him performing songwriting legend Guy Clark's "Step Inside This House," the first song Guy Clark ever wrote. Please join me and these musical guests:
Simon & Garfunkel
The Chenille Sisters
Tim Grimm Family Band
Ben Winship with John Lowell
Lyle Lovett -Click here to enjoy "Step Inside This House"
Mary Chapin Carpenter
Jay Ungar-with Mary Lea, Molly Mason, Abby Newton, Steve Rust
