I was pleased to get a chance to talk to Chris Lowe, a songwriter and performer here in NYC. Chris studied guitar with the famous Dave Van Ronk, and he has been a resident of downtown NYC for decades. We got to listen to some of his songs, and talk about whether Greenwich Village is ever what it used to be. We talked about his songs and heard performances of some recent work. It was a fun interview, and I’m a big fan. If you want to know more about his work and local appearances, you can follow him on FaceBook or get in touch with him through his YouTube channel. He’s also got some great videos of some of his music there.
His best advice for the people who come to NYC (borrowed from EB White): You have to be willing to be lucky.
Listen and enjoy!
