There’s an intense local interest here and some Louisville musicians put together what’s called The Django Jamboree, now in its 5th year. Organizer Ben Andrews brought a few of the musicians by including guitarist Adrien Moignard from Paris. His playing blew my mind. Truly incredible. Enjoy!
Daniel Martin Moore’s new album Golden Age has just been released and WFPK got to host the official release party at our first Winter Wednesday of the season!
