On this week's Liner Notes, host Max Jacobs sat down with SF musician Kelly McFarling to explore the inspiration behind her work. This classically trained vocalist didn't find her true voice until she threw a pawn shop banjo into her car and drove to San Francisco. Her inspiring picks tell of growing up in the South and all of the diverse and unique sounds she encountered on her journey west.

Catch Kelly McFarling at Awaken Cafe in Oakland on March 27.
