ROBERT PLANT And ALISON KRAUSS Release Lyric Video For 'Can't Let Go'

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have released the official lyric video for the song "Can't Let Go", from their first new album in fourteen years. Out November 19 on Rounder Records, "Raise The Roof" has been named one of the most anticipated LPs of the fall by the New York Times, New York magazine, Entertainment Weekly and more. Like its platinum-selling 2007 predecessor, "Raising Sand" — which won six Grammys, including "Album" and "Record Of The Year" — "Raise The Roof" delivers new takes on songs from legends and unsung heroes of folk, blues, country and soul music.

Pianist Lara Downes re-centers the music of the Great Migration

As a young musician, concert pianist Lara Downes was often discouraged by the lack of diversity in her field. Downes is half Black, and growing up, there were very few well-known Black composers or performers in classical music. Now today, she's trying to change that with a project we've been following at MORNING EDITION. Each month for as long as she can keep it up, Downes is releasing a mini album meant to showcase the work of overlooked or forgotten Black composers. And you can hear the music on her label Rising Sun Music.

Legendary Guitarist Leo Kottke Is Playing St. Cecilia’s Next Month

When I moved over to The Rocker earlier this year, names and songs that I hadn't thought about in a long time started coming back to me. Bands, that while I may have played on a casette tape, or more recently on my phone, I hadn't heard in a long time I've been getting reacquainted with. And today I saw the name Leo Kottke, and instantly my mind flashed to the early 1970's. I admit I had to google him to remember it. "Leo Kottke is an acoustic guitarist. He is known for a fingerpicking style that draws on blues, jazz, and folk music, and for syncopated, polyphonic melodies." That's from wikipedia.
