As some of you may know, on top of my work as a blogger I am also working as a production intern on the Border Crossings music show at Voice of America. It may not be paid, but the gig does have a surprising number of quirks. Recently, this manifested in the chance to talk with Lucy Dacus, one of my current favorite singer-songwriters, at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE.
Lucy and I chatted about who she’s rooting for in the World Cup, the surrealism involved with going from small gigs to festivals, and the rewards of sharing her brand of vulnerable music with world.
This piece was first broadcast on VOA 1’s Border Crossings program.
Keep Lucy on your radar, and give her newest album Historian a listen.
Who should I interview next? Do you have any bands I should add to my playlist? Leave a comment below and let me know what you think!
