Holiday Cheer for WFUV 2012

The Lone Bellow - Words and Music - 2012

by Rita Houston

The Lone Bellow continues a long line of great Studio A debuts. After taping their first-ever radio interview at FUV, it was pretty clear to me that more people needed to hear this Brooklyn trio. We invited the band to open our Holiday Cheer for FUV concert, but illness kept them away. Since then they've treated our Marquee Members to a performance, and appeared at a Del Posto fundraiser. If you haven't had the chance to see them live yet, do your best to get there.

So why not make a heck of a mix? Here it is through Spotify:

Shawn Colvin: All Fall Down

by Rita Houston

Shawn Colvin performing “All Fall Down” — how many song clips have you seen from PBS NewsHour? This is the title track from her latest album.

This solo performance gives you a taste of what we're in store for at the Beacon Theatre: a beautiful clear voice, great melodies, thoughtful and heartfelt songs.
