Thank you to Jace Everett:http://www.jaceeverett.com for coming in so early with Dan Cohen, before their gig at the Cedar that night. We had fun talking about Nashville, the country music machine, collaborative songwriting, and—yes—a teeny tiny bit about that True Blood:http://www.hbo.com/true-blood theme song he wrote. If you missed him live, I highly recommend seeing him next chance you get! Check the playlist for more about what we heard this morning. Mike The Hook Deutsch, I miss you.
In a sort of cross-pollination, today the last 15 minutes of “Womenfolk” (Encuentro’s preceding program) and the first 15 of Encuentro will be jointly hosted by Ellen and Gilberto. The rest of today’s music has a single theme: Soccer and the World Cup. The last 9 minutes present “Memorias de un wing derecho”, a short story by the Argentinean Roberto Fontanarrosa read by Alejandro Apo.
