Episode Guide »
Tim O'brien & Darrell Scott are roots-music titans. The highly regarded writer/singer/multi-instrumentalists have conducted their parallel careers as solo artists and sidemen, cutting similarly wide swaths across the roots-music landscape. They've continued to release solo albums while leading their own bands and lending their talents to world-class musical aggregations - notably including O'Brien's stint in Mark Knopfler's touring unit and Scott's foray with Robert Plant's Band of Joy - as well as having their songs covered by the likes of the Dixie Chicks, Dierks Bentley, Nickel Creek, Kathy Mattea, Faith Hill, Guy Clark, Sam Bush, Brad Paisley, Sara Evans, Garth Brooks, Patty Loveless, Trace Adkins and Tim McGraw. The two have just released 'Memories and Moments'. It's their long awaited studio follow-up to the 2000 release 'Real Time'. Ron Block has long since secured his reputation as a deeply thoughtful and accomplished musician. After two-decades as part of Alison Krauss' band, Union Station, with whom he's earned a collection of Grammy®, IBMA, and Dove awards, as well as many years as a songwriter and sideman for the likes of Rhonda Vincent, Randy Travis, The Boxcars, The Cox Family, Dailey & Vincent, Dolly Parton, and Vince Gill. Block now presents his third solo album, 'Walking Song'. This collection of songs contains the richest range of sentiments that Block has ever taken up, from the ultimate longings of the soul to the joy and wonder of being alive. Ron will be be performing on WoodSongs with bluegrass phenom Sierra Hull.
