World Cafe Playlist for 03/04/2024

Yard Act joins host Raina Douris

Yard Act are suddenly… a Big Deal. The band started juuuust before the pandemic hit – and while the world was on lockdown, they released a few singles that started getting folks talking. By the time they were back on the road they were being hailed as the next big thing – from the outside, it looked like a dream come true… but it came with challenges.

Listen to the session here.
