River City Folk is an engaging mix of live performance, interview, and recordings. Hosted by veteran singer-songwriter Tom May, each program features a folk artist or group from across North America who performs live in the studio. Through Tom's interviews with the artists, and recordings that have influenced them, the listener is entertained by a unique perspective on the living tradition that is folk music.
