Backtracking is a unique archive show for Roundhouse Radio from Nick Taylor and Grace Huber, rediscovering the roots of great music from the past and present.
This week we enter into folky realms as we take a look at Virginia-based artist Devon Sproule. There's music from the style Devon admires most, a couple of unusual influences in the form of Frank Zappa and girl punk legends Bikini Kill (a name Nick gets wrong at least twice. Apologies.) and plenty of other phenomenal female singer-songwriters.
Devon also happens to be one half of the sweetest married couple in music ever, and we cast aside any dark lingering cynicism to pay fitting tribute to this fact with two lovely songs from Devon Sproule and her folky other half Paul Curreri.
