Taped Thursday, May 26
at the Grey Eagle club in Asheville,
By Fred Mills
Here’s a good ‘un you should check out: our good buddy and
collaborator Joe Kendrick, of the Lingua Musica web show, interviewing
Asheville-based Americana artist Brian McGee about his upcoming 3-week national tour,
the Kickstarter campaign he mounted to fund his recent album The Taking Or the Leaving and more. It
was filmed by Jesse Hamm.
The album was produced by McGee and Pete James of the
Honeycutters at venerable Asheville studio Echo Mountain
(Avett Brothers, Band of Horses, etc.) and is well-worth investigating. Check
out McGee at his website, BrianMcGeeMusic.com.
The videotaped conversation marks the third in the new
Lingua Musica Interviews series and we’re looking forward to many more in the
very near future. (Previous installments include Dehlia Low and Ryan
Montbleau.) BLURT is a proud co-sponsor of Lingua Musica and you can expect to
see our on-camera participation at various points to boot (you have been
warned). Please visit the LinguaMusicaAlive.com
website, and meanwhile, check out the video!
