Last week on Art of the Song, our guest was Monica Taylor. We’d been going to the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Okemah, Oklahoma for five years, and this year, Monica was at the top of our list of folks we wanted to interview. Viv was unable to make the July trip this year, so Katie Mitchell, our chief community builder sat in for the interview.
Monica Taylor epitomizes what we’ve come to know and love as the Oklahoma “Red Dirt” sound, and it was great to hear her stories exactly what that is and how it got started. We had some interesting questions from the audience including an unexpected visit by Art of the Song alum, Ellis Paul!
