The Caswell Sisters (Sara - violin, Rachel - voice)

This week on Artworks, we talk with the Caswell Sisters about what it’s like as a siblings performing together. Rachel and Sara Caswell join David Brent Johnson in the WFIU studio to discuss the first CD released under both their names, Alive in the Singing Air, and growing up in and around the Jacobs School of Music.

Also on the program, Steve Pollitt brings to life a sound that has lain dormant for nearly 42,000 years. Adam Schwartz speaks with Pollitt about his work deciphering the nature of a bone flute discovered in a cave in Germany last year.
