DARRYL PURPOSE

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Darryl Purpose. With a storyteller’s heart Darryl has connected with audiences in the top folk venues in the country, including Club Passim, McCabe’s, The Bluebird Cafe, and The Kennedy Center. In the nineties he joined with a group of musicians and peaceniks to walk across the entire United States for peace. In 2005, Darryl put down the guitar and resumed his former career as a professional card player. During that time he earned enough money to buy two houses, one for himself and one for his mother. He is one of 17 members of the Blackjack Hall of Fame. Thankfully, Darryl has returned to music. In 2012 he released the highly acclaimed CD, Next Time Around, which spent five weeks at number one on the Roots Music Report folk chart. We spoke with Darryl in our Albuquerque Studios about music, card playing and healthy living. [visit Darryl's website]

LAURIE LEWIS

The Sacramento News called her “as fine a singer as anyone on the acoustic music circuit, anywhere in the world.” Billboard praised her ability to “successfully walk the high wire above esoteric country, combining elements of bluegrass and pure country to form her own seamless mix.” Sing Out! magazine recently stated, “It’s not too much of a stretch to suggest that if the “Americana” format wasn’t invented for her, it should have been.” And American folk music icon Utah Phillips boiled it down even further, asserting: “Whatever country music is supposed to be, she’s at the center of it.”

ROSANNE CASH

Our guests this week on Art of the Song are Rosanne Cash, and her husband/collaborator John Leventhal. The eldest daughter of country music icon, Johnny Cash, Rosanne has had an illustrious career of her own, with 21 top 40 country hits including 11 number ones. We spoke with Rosanne and John about the current album, The River and the Thread, a historic landscape of the American South. The album’s unique sound, which draws from country, blues, gospel, and rock, reflects the soulful mix of music that traces its history to the region.
