It was a fine summer morning here in the Heartland of America on Saturday and it started off with some ol'timey music by the Aching Hearts at Harvest Sessions at Tower Grove Farmer's Market.

The Aching Hearts is a collaboration between Kelly Wells and Ryan Spearman, two of the best known practitioners of folk and roots music in Missouri. The group features:

Kelly Wells on guitar, mandolin, washboard and vocals
Ryan Spearman on guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin and vocals

Highlights of their two set performance included "Hangover Blues," "Angel Band," "Molly (Put the Kettle On)," "Don't Claim to be an Angel" and "Steamboat Whistle Blues."

Kelly Wells is also the host of "Steam-Powered Radio" on KDHX, which airs on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

The Harvest Sessions is a free Saturday morning concert series presented at the Tower Grove Farmers Market throughout the market season. Harvest Sessions is presented by KDHX and Worms Way Hydroponics & Organics. Also sponsoring Harvest Sessions is the Regional Arts Commission and the Arts Education Council.
