2017 is getting off to an exciting start! Tonight (January 5th) at 9pm and Friday at 8:30pm on UNC-TV, catch the last story I produced in my old job as Associate Producer of NC Weekend. It features the Swannanoa Gathering, a series of workshops and concerts at Warren Wilson College that attracts impressive talent from the folk, Celtic, and Americana music scenes. I had the wonderful opportunity to interview musicians Mary Gauthier, Kathy Mattea, and Janis Ian among others, all of whom had great answers for my questions. Janis even graced us with a performance of her original song inspired by Swannanoa! You’ll also see some gorgeous mountain scenery from the Warren Wilson campus, a place worth visiting in and of itself (the featured image in this post is from a shot of one of the campus courtyards).
Wishing everyone a creative and fulfilling new year!
