Valerie June (Jacob Blickenstaff)

Singer and songwriter Valerie June defies genre – she can be a little country and a little rock and roll and there’s  also folk, blues, soul, Appalachian and a sound that’s downright ethereal. But her music is all her own, she’s called it, "organic moonshine roots music," and it’s beautiful. She joins us to play a few songs on her banjolele and to talk about her latest album "The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers," her West Tennessee roots, her poems and her new children’s book, "Somebody to Love."


Valerie June, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist; author of the new children's book "Somebody to Love" and a recent book of poetry, "Maps for the Modern World"
