Twin fiddles, mandolin, banjo, guitar and upright bass with tight harmonies and a driving dance rhythm are halmarks for Foghorn Stringband. Hear how they've found old time fiddle tunes and arranged them. Great tunes and conversation on this Alaska Live with Foghorn Stringband.

A cast of 56 kids would not fit in the KUAC Alaska Live studios but they are all on the FACT stage the first two weekends of April for the production of "James and the Giant Peach Jr" musical. James and his bug friends gave a sneak preview with songs and scenes. We get to know the kids who play the "bug-human mutant hybrids" and James with Fairbanks Academy of Children's Theatre or FACT on this delightful Alaska Live.  

The Holler! make KUAC's Alaska Live one of their stops on an Alaska tour. Michael Kirkpatrick fronts the band with his mandolin and amazing songwriting skills. Josh Fogler lays down the rhythm on drums and Joel Searls keeps it funky with bass lines. Folkedelic is one description that fits this trio really well.
