Local 518 Carmen Lookshire shares her new song, and some holiday cheer.
Cradle Switch, a five-piece acoustic Americana group, based in Cambridge, NY. Their self-titled debut is out featuring originals and a range of songs drawing from bluegrass, country, folk, and a little blues. Singer-songwriters Ferrilyn Sourdiffe and Dave Lawlor swap out guitars for banjo and mandolin. Kate Ritter brings it on the fiddle, along with some angelic vocal harmonies. David Cuite plays the upright bass as well as lead and harmony vocals, and David Norman plays percussion.
Local 518 singer-songwriter Mike Grutka has been with us since we began back in 2007. He entertained us with some great stories and songs at our 10th birthday party on the radio, too. Now, Mike is back with a great new album called "Painting the Silence."
Local 518 singer-songwriter, Carmen Lookshire tells us she has an old soul, and she loves the music of the 30s and 40s. Her sound and style may belie that, but in this session, we'll hear her sing Chris Wienk's favorite song a cappella. Plus, she sings an old Nat "King" Cole song. In addition, we hear the song she and Kenyan pop reggae singer Mtu Saba worked on together called "Don't Ask Mommy Why."
