Telluride podcast debuts

Planet Bluegrass became the first festival we're watching to produce a preview podcast with today's release of its first audio program--a 15-minute interview with mandolin virtuoso Mike Marshall, who will be appearing with bassist Edgar Meyer at the June Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

The interview covers Marshall's impressions of Telluride, his collaboration with Meyer, his interest in cooking and regional restuarants, and his love of Brazilian choro music. Definitely worth a listen. You can also subscribe to the promised series of Telluride podcasts, which are available at no cost through iTunes and other podcast distributors.

If you are not a Telluride regular but an attendee of any of the other festivals we're watching, there's one controversial point in the interview when Marshall remarks that it is Telluride's "care to the little things puts it over the top compared to any of the other festivals in the country."
