Crow Moses on Live From Studio 10 - 9/23

On his new album, Horse Heaven Hills, Crow Moses delivers a cohesive collection of songs that build upon Americana and folk traditions. Though this is his debut under the Crow Moses name, this is not his first foray into music, having previously released albums under the Musikanto moniker. But this is definitely a release that sees the Chicago folk singer expand his ability to weave compelling narratives, imagery and melodies. We’re excited to welcome the singer with his band to talk about the themes behind the album and hear some of these songs live!

Tune in Tuesday, 9/23 at 8pm CT on 91.1 FM and 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) / stream at www.vocalo.org.
