Last week on Art of the Song we celebrated our 600th show by introducing a brand new format that we’ll come back to from time to time throughout the year. This special broadcast was recorded live at the Art of the Song Coffeehouse in Albuquerque, and features five New Mexico singer/songwriters… in the round. What’s unique about this “Song Swap” is that in the first set (as is typical), each artist performs an original tune. Then, in the second half of the show, each performer does a cover of one of the other songwriters… and this was the first time the actually songwriter heard the new version of their song. The idea came to us from Art of the Song alum and Standing O artist, Gabrielle Louise, who organized and hosted the evening.
