Plattsburgh's own Lucid gets ready to bring the heat this weekend for the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival.
I chat with a picker and an MC from one of the most original bands on the scene today. Rapper R-SON and guitar picker/producer Rench talk about their unique fusion of bluegrass and hip-hop as they get ready to bring Gangstagrass to Retro Live for a show unlike anything the North Country has seen before.
Back in the 90's, The Squirrel Nut Zippers helped create a new wave of swing-inspired, New Orleans magic onto the national airwaves, in the meantime going platinum as they sold millions of albums. After releasing Beasts of Burgundy, their first album in 17 years, the Zippers aren't just back - they're bigger and better than ever. I talk with Jimbo Mathus as the band prepares to kickoff their Holiday Caravan tour in Plattsburgh's Strand Center Theatre this week.
The North Country Ballet Ensemble prepares for their annual production of the holiday favorite, The Nutcracker.
