Join us Thursday, March 14, from 5-6 pm (est), as Folk & Beyond debuts the last three known recordings by Freyda Epstein, who tragically died almost a decade ago. Art Wheeler unearthed these pieces, upon which he also performs, and will join host Peter Jones to discuss these works never before released. They will also listen to some of Freyda's performances at the legendary Prism Coffeehouse dating back to the early nineties.
