Episode 83: Ronnie McCoury and Ziek McCarter (Con Brio)

Seth and Rob update the listeners about some of their recent live music experiences throughout this episode, but the rest is a Seth Fest! Seth first interviews Ronnie McCoury and discusses his work with the legendary Del McCoury Band as well as his own The Travelin’ McCourys outfit. They talk about Ronnie’s son’s 10-piece Jazz/Funk band, the new wave of bluegrass bands, the importance of being musically versatile and many other topics. Ronnie also speaks for the first time publicly about the tragic passing of Jeff Austin. Then Seth has a brief chat with Ziek McCarter of the lively soul/R+B/PsychRock band Con Brio. Ziek talks about how Con Brio is able to take its music across the globe. Ziek speaks of how having enthusiastic fans so far from home inspires them, how they can turn seated audiences into dancing ones, their tour with Galactic, how they keep the creative juices flowing and more. Con Brio will be releasing music and touring this fall with the groundbreaking Asian/American rapper, Lyrics Born.
