World Cafe Playlist for 09/11/2020

John Craigie joins host Stephen Kallao

John Craigie is a songwriter with a storyteller’s touch – During his live shows, his stage banter between songs is full of stories just as compelling as the music he makes. It’s not an easy feat to hold an audience’s attention, but the artist – who’s been compared to John Prine – has a natural knack for being funny and charming…just don’t call it comedy. We’ll hear about it today in Craigie’s conversation with host Stephen Kallao. Plus, he performs music from his new album, Asterisk the Universe, a beautiful collection of songs recorded with friends in a Northern California cabin last year.
