This week on The Folk Tree, join us for exclusive Iowa Public Radio recordings of Iowa native Susan Werner (now based in Chicago, and known around the world), from the Oster Regent Theater in Cedar Falls; and jazzy blues, or perhaps bluesy jazz, from The Hot Club of Davenport, recorded live at Muddy Waters in Bettendorf.

We'll also hear music from Peter Mayer, Claudia Schmidt, Jean Ritchie, and the Old Crow Medicine Show, among others.

Karen Impola hosts The Folk Tree every Sunday afternoon from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m., bringing you a wide variety of traditional and contemporary sounds from the various roots and branches of folk music.  Advance requests are welcome at
