Fri, 03/26/2021 - 1:30pm to 3:00pm

Songs about the scourge of the Second Amendment from The Avett Brothers, Dan Bern, Casey Neill (a Songcircle exclusive!) and others. Then, we say goodbye to beloved Americana drummer and musical artist Don Heffington through songs he played on by Bob Dylan, Victoria Williams, The Jayhawks, and his trailblazing band Lone Justice, plus a tune of his own. Also, brand-new music from Ani DiFranco, St. Vincent, Lana del Rey, Peter Case, Lake Street Dive, and a little lady called Loretta Lynn. And Paul Simon and George Harrison sing - together! - for spring.
