Joseph Spence New Yorker Article
« on: November 14, 2018, 07:30:14 AM »
Hi all,
I saw this awhile back and meant to share then but didn't get around to it, so here it is now:
Amanda Petrusich did a short write up in August for the New Yorker about Joseph Spence and his first recordings with Sam Charters and Ann Danberg. It was spurred by the Folkways recent reissue of his first album.
