Birds Of Chicago

2706887.jpg

  "Rock & Roll in the old sense of the word: blues, country, gospel and folk...sun-lit, dappled in shadows....poetry you can dance to and poetry you can play really loud." Birds of Chicago founders Alison Russell and JT Nero (along with their 9-month-old  daughter, Ida) visit host John Floridis on the next Musician's Spotlight.

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight," 1/22/15 and 10/7/14. Listen weekly on on the radio Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., or via podcast.)
