Also, the series will be available on the PBS Passport App.
Danville resident and musician Brandon Lee Adams hosts the show. The series takes viewers behind the scenes for conversations and stories from artists known throughout the world. Viewers will hear the motivations for beloved songs such as “Highway 40 Blues” and “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.” The songs are performed live on the show.
Season one brings artist such as John Jorgenson (Elton John, Sting, Bob Dylan’s guitarist) and John McEuen, a founding member of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, to Danville. Each episode is filmed in a unique location in the city, including historical homes, a historically renovated hotel, a gas station, and a quaint bookstore.
The show will be made available nationally in January. For more information, visit the website: https://www.thelifeofamusician.com/
