Danny Barnes Interview to be Aired Thursday, March 20th in the 1pm hour
WNCW’s midday host Joe Kendrick talks with banjo iconoclast Danny Barnes Thursday in the one p.m. hour ahead of his performance this Saturday night at Moonlight Mile in Arden, NC. Danny’s latest record, Shri 108, is a further exploration of music he calls “barnyard electronics”, a solo album that blends acoustic and programmed music with lyrical themes of struggle and common dignity.
In this wide-ranging conversation, Danny touches on everything from the making of his new record to the innovations of musical pioneer Earl Scruggs to his love of vinyl and cassette formats and much more. This podcast is the full version of the interview which will be excerpted for airplay.
