Lauren sings a selection of country blues and ballads and chats it up for a full hour with host Tom May on River City Folk - a nationally syndicated radio show, now in it's 20th year.

River City Folk is an engaging mix of live performances, interviews and recordings. Hosted by veteran singer-songwriter Tom May, each program features a folk artist or group from North America performing live in the studio. Through Tom's interview with the artists, and samplings from the recordings that have influenced them, the listener is treated to a unique perspective on the living tradition that is folk music.
