Bluegrass Today columnist Lisa Jacobi has had her Artist2Artist podcast picked up by Stitcher Radio, whose free app for smart phones and tablets makes over 20,000 audio interview programs available for streaming. Stitcher charges no subscription fees for their service, which is also available at no charge through their web site.
Lisa is a Renaissance woman in the acoustic music world, working as a performer on multiple instruments, as a singer and songwriter, and as as a journalist. Her new passion for interviewing prominent bluegrass artists has been a benefit to Bluegrass Today and all our readers, and through Stitcher, will also hopefully lead to them being more widely known by mainstream news consumers.
She tells us that the app has widespread appeal.
“Stitcher Radio is the most popular entertainment broadast app available on iPhone, Droids and most tablets – as well as accessible online through the Stitcher.com website. The app is FREE and there is no subscription fee. And though Stitcher Radio is well known and highly used, I find that many of our bluegrass music folks are not yet aware of it or don’t realize how many people in the world listen to it daily for their news and entertainment during their commutes to work, in the kitchen while cooking dinner, sitting in Starbucks or doing whatever they are doing.”
You can find her full interviews on Stitcher at www.stitcher.com, or search for Artist2Artist in the app. Her monthly columns at Bluegrass Today, which are based on her interviews, can be found here. To date she has interviewed Jamie Dailey, Ron Block, Larry Cordle, Missy Raines, John Cowan, Bill Evans, and Laurie Lewis, with Larry Keel coming up next month.
You can also find Lisa with her group, Playing On The Planet.
