Coming in from the Cold

Much of the nation is locked in a deep freeze this week. Parts of the Northeast and Midwest are seeing record low temperatures, with wind chills far below zero. If you need a little warming up, tune in to the show today. We've got warm and engaging performances from the Sun Belt, including a sunny wind sextet from the Spoleto Festival in South Carolina, and a sultry tango from Savannah, Georgia.
