Tony Norris - Has Julie Sullivan as his guest this week. Julie is an old friend, a lifetime member of Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music, who is promoting a musical event this weekent at the Coconino Center For The Arts ~ Claire Lynch
Claire Lynch is one of the classiest acts in bluegrass today, capable of turning bona fide classics like Jimmy Martin's "Hey Lonesome" and the Osborne Brothers' "Up This Hill And Down" into her own even as she pays homage to the brilliance of the originals. Her infinitely expressive voice has earned her guest appearances with the likes of Dolly Parton, but it's best heard in front of her own band-anchored by senior member and award-winning guitarist Jim Hurst, it has recently incorporated underrated fiddle and mandolin player Jason Thomas and redoubtable bassist Mark Schatz, most recently of Nickel Creek. That's a formidable lineup, and Lynch wisely gives them plenty of room to shine, but in the end, it's her sensibilities-and talents-that shape the sound into one delicious whole. -JON WEISBERGER

Taymar Pixley - A Citizen Journalist from Santa Barbara California sent this compelling story to us this week. It involves some "unexpected heros" in the battles of the blaze.
