Austin Music Experience: 01.31.14

Two music veterans step into the solo spotlight this week: 9-time Grammy winner and Asleep At The Wheel frontman Ray Benson goes bluegrass, and Shearwater’s Abram Shook goes pop. Music and conversation from both this week on the Austin Music Experience. Also, the Byrds turned Pete Seeger’s rousing “Turn Turn Turn” into a worldwide hit in 1964. Chris Hillman of the Byrds salutes the late Seeger with a vintage performance of the folk classic. Plus, Brooklyn’s Lucius stops by Studio 1A, and is Austin still the “Velvet Rut”?
