Tonight, Folk School of St. Louis will celebrate its ten year anniversary with a show at the Sheldon Concert Hall (3648 Washington Boulevard, 314-533-9900). The school is the subject of this week's music feature by Chris Bay; read it for an idea of what the organization is about and the struggles it has endured en route to this milestone.

About tonight's show, Bay says, "The centerpiece of the event is a performance by the duo of Pokey LaFarge -- St. Louis' best-known folk musician -- and Ryan Spearman, who's quietly its most valuable." The two musicians recently stopped into KDHX's (88.1 FM) studio on Magnolia street for a session to preview the show. They came away with four tracks of inspired folk -- listen below.
