TOKENS is part great music, part university lecture, part cultural analysis, and part good conversation, featuring Nashville’s finest musicians and songwriters, provocative interviews with best-selling authors, all mixed up with enough humor and satire to keep things ever lively.

“Breaking down false dichotomies one episode at a time,” we like to say, TOKENS opens dialogue between artists and historians, storytellers and scholars, comedians and activists; makes space for bluegrass and classical on the same stage; and brings all sorts of folks and genres together in a sort of unexpected back-porch kind of feel, in which the whole always turns out being more than the sum of the parts.
