This week on MCR, sets that swing from the refined to the rustic and back again. The show opens with a remarkable flight of imagination by Last Train Home founder Eric Brace. He's teamed up with master Nashville multi-instrumentalist Rory Hoffman to make Cartes Postales, an album of French songs from the obscure to the classic. And we end the night with new music from the rocking country song poet from Swoope, VA we know and love as Scott Miller. In between, the craggy and truthful songs of North Carolina's David Childers and then graceful words and stunning singing from Canadian folk star Rose Cousins.
