The latest episode of our brilliant podcast is now available on iTunes and as an RSS feed here on our blog (in the menu to the right of this post) . On this episode we have a terrific chat with violin wunderkind and loopy laptop–tablist Justin Grounds. We chat about being an independent artist in Clonakilty, Cork, as well as the brilliance of Bach and a whole host of other fascinating topics. Justin also selects a handful of recordings from our live brownbread mixtape archive including a powerful poetry performance about a Clonakilty legend by award winning poet Dave Lordan [ who has written a thoughtful blog post here in response to hearing the podcast] , a stunning song by Bill Coleman and a classic comedy sketch by The Brownbread Players. Justin is genuine innovator and true gentleman. Give this episode a spin and you will be beaming afterwards.
