Feathers

The green hills of Vermont provide plenty of room for eccentric growth. The group Feathers resides there, and it's a large band of songwriters who are multi-instrumentalists and singers. Their music has been described as psych-folk, but the complexity and variety of their songs show that categories aren't their concern. Sometimes lilting, sometimes angular, Feathers' songs float comfortably across the supposed borders between tradition and experimentation. For this show Feathers brings their guitars, mandolins, banjos, violins, drums, (etc., etc.), into the WNYC studio to perform their songs, and chat with host David Garland.
