For The Love Of Music!!!
Wonderful! This podcast is such a cool way to listen in and hear the stories of the artists who are part of this historic event. Loved the first podcast with Haunt The House. Can’t wait for the second episode and beyond! Folk On!
Love some folk and this podcast has some great stories and music. I feel like pouring some coffee, settling on the couch, and listening all morning.
I'd never hear of this before, but it was great to learn some of ther stories behind this festival. Definintely give this one a listen!
