SUNDAY 9PM - MONDAY 5AM
- Hosted by Bruce Bergethon
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.) You can listen to this unique blend of "flexible folk" any time by using the persistent player link above to access our 24/7 Acousticity audio stream, or visit the Ways To Listen page for more streaming options.

11/6/16 It's a pair of musicians who have followed their own independent muses. We'll sample the latest from Chicago Farmer, called "Midwest Side Stories." Plus selections from Jack White's "Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016," including music made with The White Stripes, Dirk Powell and Pokey LaFarge.
11/13/16 "Penny's Farm" is a new collection of old tunes from a pair of veterans, Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur, who have been playing together since the sixties' folk revival.
11/20/16 The latest from mandolinist and singer Joe K. Walsh is titled "Borderland." He takes on the poetry of WB Yeats and Phil Ochs, as well as traditional tunes and originals, with the help of fiddler Brittany Haas.
11/27/16 New music from the Michigan duo called Red Tail Ring. Their latest, "Fall Away Blues," combines sweet harmonies with lonesome old time instrumentation. And (as is traditional on Acousticity), our post-Thanksgiving broadcast of "Alice's Restaurant" by Arlo Guthrie.
