TRADITIONS playlist for September 18, 2016

My guests this week were singer-songwriters Paul Sachs and Robin Greenstein (click on the links below to hear our chat and their live performances in the studio.)

Also, new music from Anne Hills & Jay Ansill, Billy Bragg & Joe Henry and the Nordic Fiddler’s Bloc.
