Join us for the weekly Live from World Cafe Live concert, as Jukebox The Ghost performs a live midday concert on Friday. The infectious pop-rock trio Jukebox The Ghost returns to our radio concert stage this
Ryan Adams used to be the picture of ramshackle prolificacy — a man with Prince's desire to flood the market with product, not to mention an equally slippery grip on the quality-control lever. But Adams has calmed down dramatically in recent years, for reasons ranging from a stabler personal life to his battles with Ménière's disease, which attacks the inner ear and affects hearing and balance. In September, the former Whiskeytown singer returns with his self-titled 14th studio album, which comes out nearly three years after his lightly brooding Ashes & Fire.

This week's Live From World Cafe Live features David Gray, who will perform to a Sold Out crowd at noon on Friday. David Gray comes back to town in support of his new album, Mutineers, the latest in a long list of consistently great
music released by Gray, whose first album, A Century Ends, was released in 1993. Since then, the past 21 years have been a whirlwind for UK-born Gray, releasing new music and touring virtually nonstop. He's amassed 10 albums of fantastic music – including 1998’s White Ladder and it’s hit single “Babylon."
Spanish Gold is a new project from members of My Morning Jacket (Patrick Hallahan), Hacienda/City and Colour (Dante Schwebel) and Brownout (Adrian Quesada. Though their main projects have very different
sonic identities from each other, the members of Spanish Gold found common ground in having grown up during the height MTV's music programming. A love for everything from funk, hip hop, pop and R&B informed the songs on South of Nowhere, while the Texas and Nashville roots of the record still shine through.
Famous country singer Rodney Crowell has still got it. Known for his work with Emmylou Harris and as a solo artist,
Crowell made a name for himself beginning with his 1988 album Diamonds & Dirt and the five number-one hits it spawned. At 63, Crowell is still recording and releasing new material. His latest album, Tarpaper Sky, maintains a traditional country style while working in bluesy influences. It is part of our special double header concert this week with Nickel Creek.

A diverse collection of music, from rock to reggae, funk, gospel and even a band that just plays baseball songs. That's all part of this year's Windstream Party in the Park concert series in Rochester which sees some changes from last year.
