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
Like a crazed yo-yo, I return this week to do the show from the studios of
WSCS-FM at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH after a brief stint back
at my old stomping grounds on WNEC-FM in Henniker over the last month. It
has been a topsy-turvy few months regarding the future of both stations,
but for now I am returning to where I am the most comfortable, and can
present the best possible show. Plenty of first time releases on the show
this week, some recent favorites, plus another track from next week's live
guest on the show, the wonderful Kate MacLeod! Here's the show:
