The music/arts/film/technology conference madness that is now known as South by Southwest starts in Austin, Texas this week. If you have decided not to run THAT marathon, Diana Linn will be sharing music from many of the artists that will be appearing in the official Americana Music Association SXSW Showcases. You can enjoy the selections from the comfort of your own couch, kitchen table chair or car seat. Standouts include Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Richard Thompson, The Wheeler Brothers, Jim Lauderdale, and Buddy Miller. And since St. Paddy’s Day is upon us, The Elders (who shared a live two hour set on the station’s Local Music Showcase this past week) are in the mix. And if that weren’t enough, Special Guest DJ Karin Bauer returns with what promises to be another stellar playlist. Enjoy the links and join us on the Couch!
