Great artists, intimate chats.
This podcast demonstrates that the most interesting artists are not necessarily household names. Intelligent talk about music and musicians by musician themselves in an informal setting.
Wonderful to have a podcast by the Montclair institution, the Outpost in the Burbs which features acoustic artists.
