We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. On this episode, folk musician Alice Gerrard talks about Elizabeth Cotten's 'Freight Train.'
On Saturday night at Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh, an all-star group of musicians pays tribute to the music Alice Gerrard made with Hazel Dickens. Most of the seats are free.
Then on Sunday in Elizabeth Cotten's hometown of Carrboro, there will be free music all over town at the Carrboro Music Festival.
