In this episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," host, Ben Kieffer will chat with Waterloo's renowned bluegrass and folk string band, Comfort Kings.

The Comfort Kings are a contemporary acoustic band from the hills of the Cedar Valley in Iowa. They play a mix of old-time, Americana, indie rock and original work using a traditional bluegrass instrumental arrangement. All three members draw on the rich history of regional Americana melodies to create original songs with vivid, poetic lyrics that evoke bygone eras.

Their full-length studio release, “Prairie Fire,” produced by the Aquatic Noise label in Excelsior, Minn., was released in early 2013. “Prairie Fire” features a mixture of original tunes and timeless folk arrangements and has been featured on the Iowa Public Radio show “The Folk Tree.”
