opbmusic Presents: Valerie June

Valerie June's surprising blend of Appalachian folk and blues styles is rendered unusually powerful by her timeless but distinctive voice. Dan Auerbach produced June's 2013 album Pushin' Against A Stone, which introduced us to this song, "Workin' Woman Blues," with its shifting rhythms, dulcimer-like guitar and plaintive lament. Here, she performs with violinist Mazz Swift and cellist Adam Hurst on the Woods Stage at .

Each month through the start of the 2015 Pickathon in late July, opbmusic and NPR Music premiere another video recorded at the Woods Stage, each hand-picked by opbmusic to showcase some of the most exciting performances from last summer's lineup. The next premiere will run on March 17.
