State History and Mystery

Musician Tommy Edwards combines the rich folklore of North Carolina with bluegrass song traditions on his new album, "North Carolina: History, Mystery, Lore and More." His melodic narratives include the stories of a ghostly light traveling along train tracks in Brunswick County where a gruesome accident occurred, the barren spot of ground in Chatham County where the Devil allegedly paced, and Edwards sings the praises of barbecue.

He talks to host Frank Stasio about his new album and plays live.
