Stories You Can't Tell on the Radio
Stories You Can't Tell on the Radio
Come watch and listen as musicians and journalists sing songs and tell an evening’s worth of stories, some live, some recorded, along with tales, some too silly, some too dark or personal, to make their way out to audiences of millions. This event will not be recorded so turn off your cell phones and focus on the here and now before the tellers and tales both, slip away into the dark anonymous folds of history.

Hosted by public radio reporter Sally Herships
Musical performances by The Chapin Sisters & Carrie Ashley Hill
Featuring journalists Stacey Vanek Smith, Golda Arthur and Camila Kerwin

Carrie Ashley Hill
"Hill's love-weary voice recalls breathy country legends like Emmylou Harris and the resolve of Stevie Nicks."
- The Village Voice.

"Celestial and guitar-plained, the musical equivalent of a breath: vanishing yet blissful." -
Zach Weg, The Deli Magazine

Carrie Ashley Hill penned her first song when life took an unexpected turn and she found herself stranded on the highway outside Trinidad, Colorado, Broke Up and Broke Down.

In the years since, she released her debut ep Me et All followed by the 2014 7" Found You, co-written with husband Jeff Berrall of Caveman and in November of 2015 the full length, Orion, Low in the Sky. The pair is currently working on the collaborative Chest High Fires project, recorded upstate at Outlier Studios in celebration of their marriage and first child.

Carrie hails from Texas, but she and her family call Brooklyn home.

Her 2016 documentary “As Many Leaves,” aired on BBC Radio 4, received rave reviews in the Times of London and The Guardian and was a BBC pick of the week. In the U.S. it was named one of the 10 Best Podcast Episodes of the Year by Vulture.Com.

Stacey grew up in Idaho and, though she loves New York with all her heart, still misses the wide-open spaces, untamed beauty and giant portions of the West.
The Chapin Sisters
The Chapin Sisters
The Chapin Sisters are Abigail and Lily Chapin. Masters of goosebump-inducing sibling harmony, they move seamlessly between their own deftly-crafted songs, familiar country classics, pop covers and traditional folk.

Raised in New York's Hudson Valley, they are third generation
musicians: their grandfather was the jazz drummer Jim Chapin, their uncle the late folk icon/humanitarian Harry Chapin, and their father is 3 time Grammy Award winning Tom Chapin. They started singing professionally at ages 6 and 8.

In 2004, after relocating to Los Angeles on a whim, they recorded a couple songs with their third sister Jessica. A friend passed their demo onto KCRW and almost instantly their dark, moody cover of Britney Spears’s Toxic became one of the most requested songs at the station.

In the last decade they have released 4 full-length albums, most recently 2015's Today's Not Yesterday. They have been featured on NPR's Weekend Edition, in Rolling Stone, Nylon, Spin, Paper, The New York Times, T Magazine, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post and have toured the world multiple times on their own and twice singing in the band She & Him.

They are currently at work on a new album.
