Travelling bard Vikesh Kapoor made time during a busy Make Music Philly Day to record a striking session for Folkadelphia.  The Philadelphia native, now living in Portland, OR, is set to release his debut LP The Ballad of Willy Robbins on October 15th.  Stream and download “Carry Me Home” below and get the full session here.

XPN will welcomes Amos Lee to the Tower Theatre on November 27th following the release of his Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song full-length.  The singer-songwriter has partnered with NoiseTrade to share a free download of “Chill In the Air” off of the new record, which features Alison Krauss on backing vocals.  The download is free, but 100% of the tips donated will go to Musicians On Call, a program that Lee has supported since WXPN started the local chapter.
