Routes & Branches 10/4/14

This week was the beginning of our Fall fundraiser here at KRVM and I decided to recap the albums I have chosen throughout this year for the Freeform American Roots Chart (FAR Charts). With a couple of exceptions all of the albums played came from these lists. You find the Far Chart at:
At the last minuet I was asked to cover our Acoustic Junction show which follows Routes & Branches so I was able to play most of the albums I had submitted so far this year. Here is what I played.
