We heard Erik Brandt:http://www.erikbrandt.com from 8:10am – 8:40am, as he told us about his trip to Hungary and recording his new album, Sometimes. He’ll celebrate the release of that new album January 22nd at the Ginkgo Coffeehouse in St Paul. We also heard new music from local group Six Mile Grove, and adventurous jazz composer/trumpeter Jon Hassell, who comes to the Walker on my mom’s birthday, February 12th.
This was a special Ghost Riders In The Sky edition of Radio Rumpus Room!
