Meg Hutchinson stopped by to play some tunes from her latest album, Beyond That.

Since the release of her Red House Records debut Come Up Full in 2008, she has won high praise for her songwriting and has been featured on NPR Music and the syndicated show Mountain Stage. Publications like The Winnipeg Free Press have compared her songwriting with that of veterans Mary Chapin Carpenter and Joni Mitchell. Meg grew up in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts.
