Acousticity showcases a broad spectrum of acoustic music, from the classic American folk sounds of Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe and Bob Wills to more modern purveyors like Gillian Welch, the Milk Carton Kids and the Avett Brothers, with Celtic classics from Mary Black, Altan and Solas mixed in.
We feature new releases and in-studio interviews and performances on Sunday nights (see below.)
