This past year, Michigan celebrated it’s inaugural festival with quite a debut. Put on by Madison House Productions of Boulder, Colo. and AEG Live , ROTHBURY was a festival designed to create 0% waste. Amazing huh?! Well – striving to find ways of making it as waste free as possible.

I had quite a time representing both Roving Festival Writer, LLC and WEMU 89.1, and part of my audio coverage was a series of interviews with some of the greatest musicians around.

Susan Tedeschi, the Grammy nominated bad-ass Mama (and wife of Derek Trucks), has to be one of the cutest ladies I have met. And I know some cute chicks, ay! With an ease to talk about her long and humble beginnings of becoming the guitar pro she is now, Susan and I chatted like gossip kids about her new studio out back and forthcoming recording process.
