Art Of The Song 7:00 am
Cormac McCarthy

this week on Art of the Song we welcome a long time favorite of ours Cormac McCarthy. Viv first met Cormac when she was booking a coffee house at her college in the late 1970s. His guitar styling, vocal ease and poetry honoring people and place made a lasting impact on her. Cormac is regarded by fellow musicians and fans alike as one of New England?s finest songwriters. His insights elevate the common place events of common people that are sometimes glorious and sometimes desperate, and they sure make for good songs
