This week we conclude our Summer travels through the Midwest on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine-Midwestern Routes Pt. 2. These programs are dedicated to the master folksinger Art Thieme who passed on May 26. We’ll hear some of the best known songwriters and lesser known traditional players including some Polka! Join us for our travels through the heartland of America. Next week we’re off to Louisiana.
