Guitar Player Interviews
Over the years we have been lucky enough to meet and talk with many great musicians. In these interviews with guitar players, musicians and songwriters we ask the artists where they got their start and about their different approaches to touring and recording.
FODfest, a series of concerts that use the healing power of music to bring people of all backgrounds together, is en route to Israel and the West Bank region in October 2010. Todd Mack, founder and organizer of the event, takes a few moments to discuss the tour as well as the new “FODfest in the Schools” program that has been launched this past year.
With FODFest starting up in ten days, I thought this would be a great time to check in on Todd Mack, a Berkshire based recording artist and producer, and find out what’s going on with this year’s festival honoring the life of Daniel Pearl. Plus we get to hear about some of the other music Todd’s working on.
