Singer-songwriter Hayley Reardon recently joined us in the NHPR studios to play some tracks from her new album, Wayfindings. At only seventeen years old, Reardon has already shared the stage with such folk icons as Peter Yarrow & Tom Rush. She has been featured on WBUR Boston & hails from Marblehead, MA.
Alice’s Restaurant was published nearly 30 years ago, the iconic song that gave the album its name is about the goings on at a restaurant owned by Alice and Ray Brock. Around the corner from the restaurant was the Old Trinity Church, which they made into their home. Ten years ago, Kate McNally, host of NHPR’s Folk Show on Sunday nights, spoke with Arlo Guthrie at the Old Trinity Church in Great Barrington, Ma, now site of the Guthrie Center. This week we’ll listen back to her interview with the folk music icon.
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.
