Over the weekend, The Voice's Sawyer Fredericks joined WAMC's Wanda Fischer on the Hudson River Sampler to talk his new album, his time on The Voice, his roots in the region, and perform a few of his songs too.

Every year, I select a few of my favorite CDs of the past year. These are some of the CDs I especially liked that came out during 2016. This is not a comprehensive list—only some that I would like to point out to listeners. We received hundreds of CDs this year at WAMC, so narrowing it down to this list was difficult, to say the least!

These are listed in alphabetical order by artist, so there is no “top” CD on the list. I hope you enjoy them!

Every year, WAMC  receives hundreds of CDs  of new music for consideration for airplay for The Hudson River Sampler.  These may arrive via the mail, or sometimes I pick them up directly from the artists at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance meeting in Kerhonksen, New York, in November, or at the Folk Alliance International meeting in Kansas City in February.
