  Vocalist and songwriter Carsie Blanton taught herself to play guitar by listening to the music of Ani DiFranco and Joan Osborne as a teen, and her musical curiosity has continued throughout her life. Her smoky vocals recall Nina Simone and Billie Holiday, and her wit as a songwriter has been compared to Cole Porter. On this Song Travels, Blanton performs her original song “Smoke Alarm,” and Feinstein joins in for “Sweet Lorraine.”
