Michael Eck

Local 518 singer-songwriter, Michael Eck dropped by to play songs of Woody Guthrie.  Michael and band mate, Brian Melick, are known as Tin Can Alley.  They have a free show at Caffe Lena on February 23 to celebrate the 80th anniversary of "This Land is Your Land." (Fun fact: February 23 is the actual anniversary date!)

This will be a family-friendly event. Bring the kids! Kids love Woody Guthrie's folk songs. They're great to sing along to!

Low Lily

Low Lily's latest album, "10,000 Days Like This," is pushing two years old. But its members, Flynn Cohen, Liz Simmons and Lissa Schneckenburger haven't been idle. In between projects, they work on solo efforts that, as Liz says "add to the palate that is the basis of Low Lily."

Emily Wolfe & Chris Wienk

Our good friend, Emily Wolfe came up through from Austin, TX to play a show tonight at The Linda. Sure... It would be the coldest day/night we've had in some time. Sorry, you guys.  Good thing we have your amazing rock to beat the cold back with.

Emily's rock trio will play tonight at The Linda.  Do yourself (and your Valentine date) a favor. Go to the show!

Carmen Lookshire & Joe Carrick

I have been a fan of Carmen Lookshire for some time. She's brought by several songs she's put out as single the past few years.  I'm so happy to report that she has a debut EP coming out on Valentine's Day, appropriately called "For Love."

Carmen and her guitarist Joe Carrick dropped by to share some tracks from the EP and play a live track for us as well.  Visit her website to see where and when she is playing out next.

Devon Gilfillian at WEXT

 Devon Gilfillian's father played in a band. Music has always been a part of Devon's life. Growing up in Philly with all kinds of music around, Devon's style is a brilliant blend.

His debut album, "Black Hole Rainbow," is filled with great sounds.

Chuck Vosganian & Chris Wienk

Rochmon Record Club is a special experience. Fans of music gather to hear all about a favorite artist, a favorite record. Chuck brings everyone together to listen to an entire album as if "for the first time."

February 15, join Chuck at Caffe Lena for John Mellencamp's "Scarecrow" record. Hear all about it.

All this week, World Cafe has been taking you on a tour of the Charlottesville, Va., music scene with our Sense Of Place series. Next month we'll continue our musical tour of Virginia with Sense Of Place: Richmond.

It was supposed to be so simple. Laura Stevenson, a singer-songwriter whose new material radiates warm intensity, would come in and knock us out with an intimate acoustic solo set performed behind Bob Boilen's desk. So I came to Bob with the idea, expecting a fast-track to the light-lift Laura Stevenson Tiny Desk concert of our dreams.

All this week we're joining you on the road from Charlottesville, Va., for our Sense Of Place series, where we bring you a deep dive into one community's music scene. And today, it doesn't get more Charlottesville than the Hackensaw Boys, who have been performing together for nearly 20 years.
