Now We are Five, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here to tell you what's in store on our fifth anniversary edition of Come by the Hills, Mushroom FM's premier Folk and Celtic music show! OF course, we'll be doing what we always do: playing three hours of amazing Folk and Celtic music for your listening pleasure, but I plan to make this a rather reflective show. Where have we been? Where are we going? You know, all the big questions in life. We'll also be taking some time to pay tribute to Nanci Griffith, who wrote some absolutely awesome songs and who sadly passed away last weekend.

It has been wonderful.
