Leda Hartman WFDD/NPR interview with Mike on the making of WAGONER'S LAD

NOW IN ITS THIRD PRINTING!

"Former Red Clay Rambler Mike Craver is a walking anachronism, a songwriter of extraordinary talent who distills elements of traditional British and American folk song and Tin Pan Alley into a mesmerizing original blend. Based on turn-of-the-century stories from Craver's Piedmont North Carolina heritage, "Wagoner's Lad" is a breathtaking song cycle, filled with vividly detailed characters relating their bittersweet first-person ballads, accompanied by Craver's keyboards and guitar, and sung in his warm, engaging, and intimate style. This is, quite simply, a timeless disc of rare and profound beauty that grows better with each new listen." Gene Hyde, DIRTY LINEN
