In the latest edition of our No Country For New Nashville Podcast, we sat down with Better Than Ezra frontman Kevin Griffin, who co-founded the upcoming Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, which kicks off its inaugural year in just a few short weeks, Sept. 26 & 27 right down the road in Franklin, TN. While Kevin’s decades of musical success and more recent turn as a producer and songwriter could easily warrant a podcast of its own, this episode focuses almost exclusively on what it takes to build a festival from scratch, and what you can expect at the first year of Pilgrimage (aside from just the stacked bill, which boasts Weezer, Wilco, Willie Nelson, Cage the Elephant, Steven Tyler, and tons more). Find out more about the fest right here.
The second podcast since our return from summer haitus, episode 12 once again brings back assistant editor Philip Obenschain as host, following recent episodes with CAPPA, Five Knives, HalfNoise, and firekid. Don’t forget to check out previous episodes, helmed by Brad Wilson, featuring Brooke Waggoner, JT Daly of Paper Route, Vinyl Thief, Canon Blue, Ben Elkins of ELEL, John Davis of Superdrag and The Lees of Memory, and Alanna Royale.
