Each episode will feature a new guest and provide an opportunity for listeners to get to know more about the people behind the music, as well as their influences and stories throughout their career. While COVID-19 has provided a shortage of gigs, musicians everywhere now have a lot of time on their hands to hit the shed, create new works, and find projects that keep the music alive. A large part of the gig is the “hang” among musicians: the time in the green room, at the bar in between sets, and talking about any myriad of topics. So, if we can’t have the gig - we might as well have the hang. Join us!
