Acoustic, Americana and Roots
On this weekend's episode of The Local Show, Low will be our in-studio guest, fresh off the heels of a sold out 20th anniversary show at the Fitzgerald Theater.
It's also our last show to feature 12 Rods as our local artist of the month. Bill DeVille will talk with David Campbell about April's artist of the month: The Jayhawks.
He'll also introduce Kevin Beacham and Siddiq to The Current's local team. Kevin will give us the scoop on H2 and H2 Local.
And lastly, Andrea Swensson's got stories to share regarding the new Strange Names 7", a profile on Southwire and Grant Cutler's new Weird Visions project.
Local stories from this episode:
Grant Cutler teams up with Holly Newsom for new avant pop project, Weird Visions

It takes a long time for any band to leave a substantial mark on the music world, and for Minnesota, there's only a handful of artists for each decade that we can say measure up. It's safe to assume we can now add Low to that list as the band celebrates 20 years together, as well as the release of their most acclaimed album yet "The Invisible Way."
