Ever since the first National Folk Festival was held here in 1934, St. Louis has served as an ambassador for the eclectic mix of music called folk. So it's fitting that KDHX, the Sheldon and St. Louis serve as the host for the Folk & Roots Festival, now in its third year.

"Golden Road," from her 2013 album "High Moon Order," finds the Kansas City-based musician in a reflective, lush, pedal steel-dappled mood.

"American music is alive and well. This is the new classical music," Pokey LaFarge emphasized partway through his first-ever concert with Ryan Spearman. Appropriate, since they were celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Folk School of St. Louis at the Sheldon on December 1 (an event welcomed by KDHX).
