Listen: Grace Potter Has Our Song Of The Week From 2007
This week’s encore broadcast was recorded in 2007 during FestivALL Charleston. We hear from New Orleans soul-queen Irma Thomas, a set from then-up-and-coming group Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, brother-sister duo Tim & Mollie O’Brien, sacred steel from The Campbell Brothers, and the one and only Jesse Winchester.
Our Song of the Week comes from Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, a band founded by vocalist, keyboardist and guitarist Potter, with her former husband and Nocturnals drummer, Matt Burr. The band was touring at the time in support of their album This is Somewhere. Our Song of the Week is the band’s performance of “Falling or Flying,” a track that also appears on that critically acclaimed album.
Elsewhere on the show we hear from Soul-Queen of New Orleans Irma Thomas, brother-sister duo Tim & Mollie O’Brien, sacred steel from The Campbell Brothers, and a charming set from the gone-but-never-forgotten Jesse Winchester.
