In Studio: Shara Worden and Sarah Kirkland Snider

Monday, October 18, 2010

Homer's Odyssey has been inspiration to many a songwriter. But composer Sarah Kirkland Snider has created a decidedly modern spin on the epic poem. The song cycle, called Penelope, is a meditation on identity, memory and the question of home - and features Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond at its central voice. Sarah Kirkland Snider and Shara Worden join us to discuss their collaboration and preview songs from Penelope.
