Out of the Woods is an earthy, wires and wood, mostly acoustic program featuring some of the best new and established artists from the worlds of folk, bluegrass, singer-songwriters,, Americana, classic country, old-time, Celtic, and everything that falls in between. The show is an unpredictable mix flowing like a river between moods, often with an edge or in a melancholy minor key. On occasion, Out of the Woods features interviews and live in-studio performances with national and international touring musicians. Past guests have included artists such as Bela Fleck, Si Kahn, Brown Bird, Dana Robinson, Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen, Bill Bourne, Karl Shiflett, Rachel Bissex, Darryl Purpose, Bow Thayer, Cosy Sheridan and many others. Out of the Woods grew out of Jon 'Chip' Colcord's former acoustic programs, The Song Swap and Music For The Mountain, separate folk and bluegrass programs which aired in New Hampshire during the 1990s. As a child, Colcord grew up a ravenous music fan with an ear for both rock and folk, from Arlo Guthrie to Aerosmith. All of these influences converge on Out of the Woods to bring you a mix which is as much on the edge as it is down home. Folk music with a rock 'n' roll soul.

This week I was happy to welcome singer-songwriter Zak Trojano into the studio. Zak is not only born and raised in our area, but we also went to the same high school (graduating 13 years apart). We had a good time name-dropping about teachers and town folk. Zak occasionally returns to our area, but spends most of his time living in western Massachusetts and touring with his band Rusty Belle. He also tours as a solo act, and has toured in support of both Chris Smither and Jeffrey Foucault. It was a good time, and Zak even played a couple of new songs, still untitled, as well as many also appearing on his CD 'Two Lines', plus a couple Rusty Belle songs as well.
