I’ve said this more times than I can honestly count, but I’m convinced that the real dividend in this music path is all the folks I keep meeting along the way. Case in point: This podcast is a song circle, a gathering of other players (some old friends, some new) recorded at the American River Music Festival back in September of this year. (Episode #46, also recorded at the festival, was a chat with Joziah Longo of Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams after their main stage set.)
We’ll gather back at camp on Saturday evening, after a day of sun and music and after an evening’s performance by Ray Bonneville at the camp lodge. You’ll hear original songs from me, Greg Kitchel, Dana Hubbard, and Stryngs and Martin (our new pals from across the pond). Rob Hastings covers Paul Thorn’s “I Have a Good Day”, KVMR’s Wesley Robertson relates a story about Thorn’s song “Joannie the Jehovah’s Witness Stripper”, and we’re eventually reprimanded by the camp caretaker for playing music after “Quiet Time”.
Note: Both Dana Hubbard and Stryngs and Martin have all since come by the house and will soon be featured in their own “Songs and Stories” interviews. Sign up on my mailing list if you’d like to know when those episodes are available.
