There is now one more bluegrass podcast in circulation over the internet. Planet Bluegrass is now hosting a bi-weekly podcast featuring interviews with performers scheduled to appear at upcoming festivals. The podcast also includes memories from past festivals and news about upcoming events from Planet Bluegrass. Planet Bluegrass is one of the first festivals in the country to offer a free festival preview podcast.
The first episode features an interview with mandolin virtuoso Mike Marshall, who discusses his upcoming Telluride performance, his latest culinary adventures, and a solo mandolin performance of the Brazilian choro “Odeon.”
Future podcasts will include both new Planet Bluegrass artists (Stephen Kellogg is scheduled for a future podcast) and festival veterans (Tim O”Brien and Yonder Mountain String Band are both scheduled for feature episodes).
