The Patty Griffin Hub
This week’s Podcast Corner revolves around Patty Griffin, the Maine native, beloved in Nashville’s Americana songwriting community and at home in Austin, Texas. Freight Train Boogie highlights three songs from Griffin’s Servant of Love album. My Favorite Album shares Catherine Britt’s favorite album, Griffin’s Living With Ghosts. The International Americana Music Show features our loosest connection this week, Gareth Dunlop, a songwriter from Nashville’s “Sister City,” Belfast, Northern Ireland. For an acclaimed songwriter and performer, Griffin credits her friends and colleagues for championing her music, particularly her close friend, “Emmy” — Emmylou Harris to the rest of us.
Do y’all have a podcast theme, recurring thread, or podcasting technical question you’d like me to cover in this section? Pop me a note via the Contact link, and I’ll do my best to serve it up soon. As always, if you know of a great roots music podcast, we would love to have them upload it to No Depression — all a podcaster has to do is join at the top right of the page (free!), read & agree to the FAQ & regulations, and post under “Podcasts.” By popular request, we will revisit the “introduction to podcasts” theme next month. –SS
