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 John Hartford, 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.

Plus a preview of the Grammies and ticket giveaways to the Chieftains March 1 show at Sangamon Auditorium.
On 2/21/16, the debut release from Charm City Junction, a band that joyously blends old-timey and traditional Celtic musics.
"Beg and Borrow" is the latest from neo-trad outfit The Battlefield Band. It borrows equally from Scottish and Irish traditional music, with guest performances from Alison Kinnaird, Christine Primrose and John Martin. You'll hear it on 2/28/16.
