Learn about her roots in Alaska, her first shows at the Anchorage Folk Festival and where the name Wanderbird comes from... Thanks to Whistling Swan Productions.

Paco arrived at the KNBA studio's ready to celebrate 30 years of traveling and playing songs with his buddy Tim Easton. A new album recorded direct to lacquer showcases Paco's tenor and Tim's talent. In our session we'll hear more about how they met, ways they bonded, the travels and... what the heck is a Melodic Polaroid? Paco, Tim... Welcome Home!

The Alaska Room at the 2018 Folk Alliance conference, in Kansas City, MO, was a great reason for KNBA to test some new equipment used for 'remote' broadcasts.  Michael Howard led the live music from Alaskans attending the big event down south!

Whitehorse, Yukon is home for Gordie Tentrees. His days could be filled with family, hockey, skiing, running or he just might hit the road and tour through small towns and cities where he brings the characters and the character of the road to music. His newest project features Jaxson Haldane on a CD called Grit, showcasing the real, raw sound of a Gordie Tentrees performance. Since 2014 he's played 550 shows in 11 different countries, but when you meet him you feel like he's your good neighbor friend who plays music at your favorite hole in the wall.
