A focus on regional folk music has always been a priority on High Plains Morning, and thankfully there are a host of young, emerging voices cropping up across the rural High Plains. Today, our high-school intern, Phoo Phae Sone, caught up with two of them: Jenna Rae & Martin Farrell, Jr. They perform as the folk duo, Jenna & Martin, but they also have their own solo work. Plus, a couple of years ago, they converted a tornado shelter into a recording studio at their home in Stull, Kansas: Lost Cowgirl Records. Hear the full interview on the link provided.
