In the studio today for a new Firehouse Session is Amanda Shires. Amanda Shires is in town for her show as opener for Richard Thompson at the Buskirk Chumley Theatre whilst touring her new album “Down Fell the Doves” Besides making music as a solo artist, Shires also tours with husband Jason Isbell.
When Amanda Shires goes on tour, she meets a lot of interesting people. Once after a show in Tampa, Florida, a fellow calling himself Tiger Bill handed her a mysterious bag — whose contents, he said, would make her “bulletproof.”

Stefan Zweig was an Austrian Jew whose books were among the first burned by the Nazis in 1933. He was one of the most beloved writers of the 1920s and 30s, but he committed suicide in Brazil in 1942, despairing that the Old Europe he loved was lost. His novella “The Burning Secret” shows the psychoanalytic influence of his friend Sigmund Freud. Zweig has enjoyed a recent renaissance in the English-speaking world, and was the inspiration for filmmaker Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.
