As usual, we open the show with a powerful collection of country, bluegrass and old-time songs and tunes, keeping us rooted in traditions as we explore new sounds.  Segment 2 of the show features Caleb Caudle, a versatile, always-exploring artist from North Carolina's piedmont.  His new album, Crushed Coins, debuts on February 23 with a release party at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, NC.  We hear the title cut plus another song, and talk with Caleb Caudle about his evolution through punk rock, singer-songwriter, modern country, and Americana.  Hear his stories of growing up surrounded by music in one of the most music-rich and tradition-rich areas of the U.S.  He explains how that's affected his own music.  We wrap up the show with some deeply rooted blues, and a haunting fiddle tune.
