Three bands present harmony-rich americana/folk sets to warm the heart and soul—just what the doctor ordered to stave off the late-January blahs. Tonight's dose of Dr. K's musical medicine features Misner & Smith, Three at Last, and Family Lines.

Sam Misner and Megan Smith began their musical collaboration after discovering a mutual love of americana music and storytelling. The duo's unique vocal harmonies wrap around influences ranging from old-time music to folk to Motown and the blues. Weaving the tales of various memorable characters through their original songs, they present richly textured tunes both fictional and historical, as in their acclaimed "Triangle Factory Fire," based on the true story of the infamous fire at the Triangle Waistcoat Factory in New York City in 1911.

Intelligent songwriting, lush vocal harmonies, and tasty multi-instrumentalism mark the folk music presented by Three at Last, a trio of singer-songwriters whose topics veer from from social commentary to modern relationships to complete silliness. With a sound rooted in American folk and rock traditions, they aim to push the blend of classic and current into rich new realms. Three at Last features Anita Sandwina (vocals, guitar, mandolin, violin); Ginger Parish (vocals, guitar, percussion, harmonica, recorder); and Velvy Appleton (guitar, vocals, bass).

The trio Family Lines performs outstanding original music as well as folk, blues, and roots favorites. Songwriter and singer Tim McDonald, vocalist Susan Nielsen, and multi-instrumentalist Ken Frankel blend their voices in beautiful harmony in a repertoire extending from Bob Dylan's "Wagon Wheel" to Gillian Welch's "Tear my Stillhouse Down".
