PODCAST #27

Jim Rooney has spent the past fifty years or so playing, writing, promoting, recording, and producing American folk music - both traditional and contemporary. He is, perhaps, best known these days as the record producer for Nanci Griffith, Iris Dement, John Prine, and many others - a body of work for which he was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by the AMERICANA MUSIC ASSOCIATION in 2009. He also has a Facebook page for current happenings. Feel free to "Like" it
