Episode Guide »
Michael Johnathon and the WoodSongs Crew head to Eureka Springs, Arkansas for the second show of a double broadcast taping at as part of the 66th Annual Ozark Folk Festival. Michael Martin Murphey has been called "one of the best songwriters in America." Murphey has left an indelible mark on the American Music Landscape crafting and recording such iconic hits as "Wildfire," "Carolina In The Pines", "Geronimo's Cadillac", "Cowboy Logic," "Cherokee Fiddle", "Boy From The Country" and more. In the process, he has earned six gold albums and multiple Grammy nominations. His latest release is the bluegrass flavored album 'Red River Drifter'. The Clark Family Trio are from Searcy, Arkansas and perform modern Bluegrass, Americana and Gospel favorites, featuring tight three-part "family" harmonies and finger-style and flat picked acoustic guitar. Nine-year-old Sally Ann Clark and her big sister, 15-year-old Sophie, have literally grown up singing with their Mom, Cindy (who also plays upright bass for the group). They are joined by Little Rock superpicker Bill Nesbitt on acoustic guitar. Fiddlin' Banjo Billy Mathews has been playing music for over forty years in the Old Time genre. Still residing in the Ozark Mountains, he is known far and wide across this land for his musical skill and old time fiddling ability.
