I was able to interview Hank at the Twisted Pines Music in Movies festival about his own music and songwriting. Washboard Hank is a Canadian folk music institution. He has released several CDs of quirky and humorous music, a Children’s CD and played for many years in Fred Eaglesmith’s band. Our interview delved into the meat of songwriting but also features some of his more adult oriented material so I’m putting an Itunes explicit label on this episode.

Here are my Podcamp Boston Pictures for your viewing enjoyment. I had a blast at Podcamp Boston 3, met some great people, and had some wonderful conversations.

Kudos to the entire PCB3 team for hosting a fantastic event.
James Gordon has been a fixture of the Canadian folk music scene for over 25 years. He was a founding member of Tamarack, and played with them for 22 years before going solo about 10 years ago. He has written hometown songs and humorous songs for CBC radio, and has written a number of musical plays. I interviewed James at the Mariposa Folk Festival on the deck of his hand-made houseboat, the Eramosa Belle. For this episode, James and I both played a lovely handmade guitar built by Ron Belanger.
