I Hear America Singing

Saturday 7pm, Sunday 9pm

Some say it was the Kingston Trio who brought Folk Music of out the nightclubs and the halls of academia and into cars and living rooms all over the United States. Join us for a new program putting a spotlight on Folk Music. Ross Burns hosts this program sharing with you a wide range of performers and songs from his personal collection of Folk Music...putting the music into perspective of its time and in todays society. Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 9pm tune in and learn about the many directions Folk Music has taken on I Hear America Singing. 

"First of all I LOVE your program.  In fact, you are the main reason I am a member of KWBU."   -- Nancy Marquis, 2018

 

On I Hear America Singing this weekend, we have special guests Sharon Douglas and Freddie Fuller on board to tell us all about the First Salado Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering coming up May 6th through 9th.

The first modern Cowboy Poetry Gathering was held in Elko, Nevada in 1985. The following year, the first Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering was held on the campus of Sul Ross State University in Alpine. Since then, Gatherings have popped up all over the nation.
