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
Big fun in the studio tonight as we welcomed Neptune's Car into the studio. Neptune's Car are Holly Hanson and Steve Hayes, and are best know for their songs about historic lighthouses and the lives of the keepers. They have a new CD out called Letters From The Road, which is their second. We had originally planned on beginning earlier, and for a shorter stretch, but Holly was a bit late arriving, and we had a small studio audience, so we turned the entire second half of the show into a concert. I started the show with a couple of things for the upcoming election, and I sent a few songs out to the people on New Jersey and New York. Here is how the show unfolded:
