I talked with eco-troubadour Bill Oliver back in episode 3 of That’s Soundacious, and this is a very timely song about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and the “response” of Texas governor (and current Republican Presidential candidate) Rick Perry. You can hear more of Bill’s music at his website, mrhabitat.net.
John Voorhees talks with Ken Gaines about the origins of Camp Stupid at the Kerrville Folk Festival and how to know folk music when you hear it. Plus, tunes from Gary Sapone, Hans York, Val D’Alessio and Dave Tinder.
Here are the websites of this episode’s featured artists:
In this episode, we hear the second half of our visit with the 2011 finalists of Kerrville Folk Festival’s University Songwriters competition. We also get a lesson in KFF history from “eco-troubadour” Bill Oliver
