Before the show, Christine and I caught up backstage and we recorded an episode of her radio show One On One Plus One, which airs on Folk Music Notebook, an online streaming network dedicated entirely to folk music.

Tune in
at 9:00pm ET on Wednesday, July 17 to hear our chat, my “signature song”, and a song by another artist that I want the world to hear. Big thanks to Christine for all her amazing support!
