John Lowell interview on

John LowellOur friends at have recently published a lengthy piece on guitarist, singer and songwriter John Lowell. John will be on the faculty of the 2008 Sore Fingers bluegrass camp in England, where he will teach songwriting.

The article covers a number of topics, including his ongoing collaboration with British musicians, Dom Harrison and Leon Hunt.

"It’s kind of cool to be in a transatlantic band with technology being what it is today. Ben [Winship] and I recorded our stuff, Dom and Leon recorded their stuff and then we emailed the files to each other so the guys on the opposite side of the pond could add their parts. It all gets put together into music that sounds like we were all in the same room. I’m not sure what the CD will be called, but rest assured it will be something very witty and clever."
