Episode: Spontaneous Connections with Special Guest Cindy Lee Berryhill

Aug 17, 2018 episode of Connections on WPKN with Eric Cocks. New and vintage music, with an interview and live performance by very special guest Cindy Lee Berryhill. Includes new releases by Sam Phillips, The Kinks, Mike Viola, Mitski, The Crushing Violets, Christine and The Queens, Jimmer and Syd, Aimee Mann, Willie Nelson and more. 

Also Bob Dylan rarities, Beatles, Nilsson, Rolling Stones, Richard Barone, Steve Addabbo, James Brown, Lisa Germano, Duane Eddy, Barnaby Bye, Don Adams, Gene Autry, Bobby Darin, Beach Boys, Syndicate of Sound, Slow Moving Molecules and whatever happened in the moment. 

The interview with Cindy Lee Berryhill starts about an hour in, and includes several live performances with Cindy Lee joined by Renata Bratt on cello and Paula Luber on percussion and glockenspiel. 

A wide ranging artist, Cindy Lee released her first new album in ten years in 2017 to superb reviews. The Adventurist, on Omnivore Records, lives up to its title song, exploring sounds, feelings and musical and lyric ideas from a number of different angles… revealing more and more layers with repeated listens. As one of the founders of the antifolk movement, Cindy Lee has always been an innovator. One of her acclaimed earlier albums, Garage Orchestra, will be re-released by Omnivore in the spring of 2019. 

It was a real pleasure to have Cindy Lee, Renata and Paula perform these songs in such an intimate setting, while also having great fun in conversation. Special thanks to archivist and engineer, Alan Bershaw. 

Also thanks to Richard Barone, Steve Addabbo, Cindy Lee, Syd Straw, John Sebastian, Maria Muldaur, Jesse Colin Young, David Amram, Melanie, The Kennedys and everyone who was a part of Music + Revolution: Songs of Greenwich Village in the 1960's.
