Each month explores a different theme, and with this month’s focus on folk music, Ray makes a natural fit for hosting the show. The concert will feature three Atlanta folk artists: Rising Appalachia, Eliot Bronson and Joy Conaway. Before Ray hits the stage tomorrow, she joined “City Lights” senior producer Kim Drobes via Zoom to talk about her life in Georgia folk music.

Blackmon will be present for the opening reception Friday 6-8 p.m. and will give an artist talk Saturday at 11 a.m. Masks optional.

McEntire and is available through all digital service providers and Amy's own Daemon Records HERE. The song was penned by Amy Ray and recorded with her band remotely in their respective homes.

Alt-Americana, North Carolinian and Merge Records artist H.C. McEntire (Mount Moriah) provides a whole chorus of backing vocals that are her own special flavor of sweet and devastating.
