Live and Local

Folksongs of Illinois with Bucky Halker; Nashville singer Matt Belsante


Bucky Halker calls himself a folksinger, writer, rocker, scholar, labor songster and alt-country twanger. He'll be in Champaign on Sunday with his program on the Folksongs of Illinois, and he'll be my guest on the Thursday edition of "Live and Local." We'll also hear from Matt Belsante, a 23-year-old crooner from Nashville who's the featured artist at the WGLT Jazz Cabaret in Normal on Saturday.
