The Alabama Shakes delivered a crushingly electric set at the Loveless Barn, located directly behind Nashville's famous Loveless Cafe. The crowd of 500 cheered each song as the band delivered a thrillingly uninhibited show. The band dashed through blistering rockabilly boogies, eruptive country-soul ballads, and more from their 2012 debut album, Boys & Girls, and the collection of new material earmarked for a much anticipated follow-up. Front woman Brittany Howard testified to the deeply felt truths of the songs with ferocity, and her bandmates were with her all the way-gutsy, dynamic, and altogether riveting.
THE KRUGER BROTHERS are three soulful world-class virtuosos originally from Europe and now living in North Carolina. They were first introduced to American audiences in 1997, quickly gaining the attention of fans and the music industry alike. In an ever expanding body of work, Jens Kruger (banjo, vocals), Uwe Kruger (guitar, lead vocals), and Joel Landsberg (bass, vocals) personify the spirit of exploration and innovation that forms the core of the American musical tradition. In fact, Jens Kruger was recently named the fourth recipient of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass Music. Kruger is known for his innovative banjo composition and performance that integrates folk music with European classical music. This is personified in the band's latest work 'The Spirit of the Rockies'. A poetic, spiraling tale about ghosts, relationships and guides - both seen and unseen that was written by Jens for a small orchestral ensemble.

MARKET TO MARKET will continue the tradition that's made it one of the longest-running series on public television and the longest- running agricultural program anywhere - solid reporting about the issues that challenge agriculture and expert analysis of major commodity markets that fuel the economic engine of rural America. Despite the fact that agriculture and rural enterprises represent important sectors in nearly every state's economy, rural America's stories are given scant attention by the nation's traditional media. That's why MARKET TO MARKET'S broad range of reporting - from global trade conflicts to environmental controversies to new technologies to emerging rural economic initiatives -- is so important. As important are the series' experienced market analysts who provide thoughtful insight about price trends and offer strategies to help producers and processors cope with changing times. Mike Pearson returns as host and is nationally recognized for his agribusiness acumen and rural expertise.

Imagine a craze as potent as the wildest stock market boom, a commodity as precious as gold. This was Tulipmania, which gripped 17th century Amsterdam.

Men murdered for them, the stock exchange began dealing in them and people mortgaged their house to buy a single bulb. The end came overnight.
We feature country music icon Emmylou Harris and the incredible work she's doing to help homeless pets and disadvantaged youth in Nashville and another story about police departments that get their K9s from animal shelters. Each year 6-8 million dogs and cats enter animal shelters in the United States. Half of them will be euthanized. This situation can be improved if communities get more involved with their local shelters. Shelter Me believes that change comes from inspiration, not desperation. By focusing on positive stories, we are addressing misconceptions about shelter pets and helping get more adopted into loving homes. We will be supporting the broadcasts with a comprehensive media and social media campaign, including outreach by local shelters, rescues and national animal welfare organizations. Shelter Me does not focus on the doom-and-gloom. We tell upbeat stories that will lift viewers' spirits and fill them with hope.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines voting regulations in North Carolina. The state has had some of the most progressive voting practices in the U.S. and one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. But in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn a key part of the Voting Rights Act, the Republican-led state legislature passed a law instituting voter ID and overturning many of the voting procedures civil rights leaders spent years trying win. Now, the law is being challenged in federal court, to weigh whether it disenfranchises minorities who have been fighting for their voting rights for decades. NewsHour's Jeff Greenfield reports.

Just outside St Mary Mead stands Gossington Hall, home of Colonel and Dolly Bantry. One morning, Mary the maid discovers a dead body in the library - a young, peroxide blonde lying on the hearth rug. She has been strangled. Mrs Bantry turns to her friend and neighbour, Jane Marple, for help. Also there to view the evidence is the local policeman, Lake; the Chief Constable (also a close neighbour), Colonel Melchett; and the relentless Inspector Slack. A remark from Miss Marple suggests that Basil Blake, a flamboyant young man in the village who works in the film industry, might be worth investigating. Otherwise the finger of suspicion points to Colonel Bantry himself, particularly when it transpires that the murder victim had been working as a dance hostess at the Majestic Hotel in the nearby seaside resort of Danemouth - and that Colonel Bantry had dined there the previous week. The focus of the investigation shifts to the Majestic. Mrs Bantry and Miss Marple decide to take a suite there to do some sleuthing of their own and establish Colonel Bantry's innocence. Miss Marple senses an additional catastrophe is imminent...
At the Majestic, the investigation concentrates on those who had been particularly connected with the murder victim, Ruby Keene. Ruby's cousin, Josie, had been working there. Conway Jefferson, an elderly, rich tycoon, had proposed to adopt Ruby and settle his estate upon her. This makes his family (or rather his family-in-law, as his blood relatives were killed in a plane accident some years ago) prime suspects. But Mark Gaskell and Adelaide Jefferson's alibis are watertight. Meanwhile, a second body has been found by Malcolm, the village simpleton. It is 16-year-old schoolgirl, Pamela Reeve. Miss Marple is convinced that the two murders are connected. She is joined by Sir Henry Clithering, former Assistant Commissioner at Scotland Yard, who is also unofficially trying to unravel the mystery. As each suspect is weighed in turn, suddenly hard evidence emerges that puts the spotlight firmly back on Miss Marple's first intuitive guess - Basil Blake.
