Show 057 – Spring in the High Desert (2019-03-23)

posted in: Past Shows

The vernal equinox has happened, and It’s officially spring, but here in the high desert it simply means that there’s still a month and a half remaining of blustery, snowy, slushy weather. So, we selected a bunch of lovely and lively tunes and melancholy songs about the coming of spring and the tenacity of winter.This week, we present Jimmy Morrison, Emer Mayock, Laurence Nugent, Ed Miller, Verena Commins & Julie Langan, Catherine-Ann MacPhee, Liz & Yvonne Kane, John Doyle, Kathleen Conneely, Colcannon, Navan, Tri Yann, Dick Gaughan, and Danú.
