Nashville-bred singer-songwriter Rayland Baxter is your classic folk-rock rambler: He's traveled the world to find inspiration and written songs to reflect his observations along the way. Of course, when it comes to inspiration, it helps that Baxter's father — Bucky Baxter, who's played with Bob Dylan, Steve Earle and others — is a dynamite multi-instrumentalist and pedal-steel master who kept his son immersed in music.

Hear Rayland Baxter perform songs from his debut album — last year's Feathers & Fishhooks — as part of the 2013 Newport Folk Festival, recorded live on Saturday, July 27 in Newport, R.I.
