Today, I'll be talking with Allison Adams, a songwriter, singer, guitarist, mandolinist, ukulelist, and concertinist who has been making music on Atlanta’s acoustic scene for more than a dozen years. Her just-released second CD, Songs From the Garden found inspiration in her backyard—her vegetable patch, her laundry line, her flock of chickens. Literate and lyrical, the songs in this collections illuminate the transcendent in the ordinary, from homemade peach pie and a favorite pair of flip flops to a small-town beauty pageant and the first flush of fireflies on a late spring evening.

Allison and I will also be discussing the idea of sustainable living, a subject she writes about on her blog, The Southern Urban Homestead. Join me for what I'm sure will be a multi-faceted conversation with a true Renaissance Woman.
