Episode 8: The 27th Street Podcast

The 27th Street Podcast is back after a brief hiatus. This episode features my conversation with Mike Chew in the Dogwood Banjo workshop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I was in the Twin Cities to pick up Dogwood Banjos # 52, which Mike made for me. I really enjoyed our conversation, while Mike put the finishing touches on my instrument.
