In this episode I'm in the car driving back from Lincoln where I sat in on a gig with Krista Detor and Dave Weber. We had just played the Barley St. Tavern the night before and had a truly magical show along with bass player Craig Balderston. We finally got to do an interview in the car on the way back. We talk about her new reording, touring Europe, and how gifts of firearms aren't quite the same as an engagement ring.
With her highly acclaimed album, Mudshow (“a small miracle” Rolling Stone), Krista Detor was established as a gifted player on the world stage. Together with partner and producer, David Weber, she continues to push the edges of genre while remaining close throughout to the lyrical thread that defines her work. She has reached #1 on the Euro-Americana chart and her music has been featured at the Cannes Film Festival, on NPR, PBS, the BBC, as well as countless U.S. and European national, regional, and local radio shows. She has appeared on both U.S. and European television and collaborated on the CD and stage show Wilderness Plots, which has received rave reviews, became a PBS special and was honored by both houses of the Indiana Legislature for contributions to the arts. The show will continue to tour throughout the U.S. well into the future.
