Here's a great session from our archives: last year we had Joe Cheves, aka Sawmill Joe in our CPR Performance Studio for an interview and performance. Joe originally hails from Maryland but migrated to Denver in 2007, and we're much better off for it. Joe and his band played us three memorable tunes, characterized by Joe's gravelly blues howl and his band's country-rock acoustic and slide guitar. 

This session has proved to be one of our most popular among listeners, thanks in part to Denver folksters The Lumineers covering Sawmill Joe's "Ain't Nobody's Problem" at live shows. Alisha spoke with the band about their actual sawmill origins, writing and living in Coal Creek Canyon, and his days at Denver's Meadowlark hanging with The Lumineers.

Check out the session above, and watch a video of "Ain't Nobody's Problem" below!
