'The life of a musician'

Thanks to Dave Byrne jr of mygrassisblue.com for this news:

As per our recent Facebook post, I want to highlight a sponsorship agreement we’ve recently entered into, and to highlight some content your audience might like.

'The life of a musician' is a new music interview series featuring a selection of some of the best acoustic musicians around. Hosted by acclaimed singer-songwriter and flatpicking Danville, VA, native Brandon Lee Adams (who we toured around Ireland as a duo with Johnny Staats in late 2019) and broadcast on Roanoke-based Blue Ridge PBS, each of the thirteen episodes in the show’s inaugural series is filmed on location in an intimate Danville setting including an array of historical homes, local business establishments, hotels, and even an old gas station. These are one-on-one stripped-down authentically 'real' interviews with no scripts, offering a unique insight into the musician’s influences and their musical journey.

All episodes will be viewable via broadcast every Saturday at 9.00 p.m. ET as per the below schedule but can also be streamed on the Blue Ridge PBS website (www.pbs.org/show/life-musician/), accessible to international viewers after a free and simple registration process).
