Laurelyn Dossett’s musical talent has led her to collaborate on shows for Triad Stage in Greensboro and with the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra. Dossett’s newest project is a song cycle called "The Gathering" about a journey home on a winter night. The composition will premiere as part of A Carolina Christmas at Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh this weekend. Dossett and performer Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops stop by to sing and talk about the holiday concert with host Frank Stasio.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
