Conversation with Rachael Kilgour

This episode features Minnesota's own Rachael Kilgour. We met Rachel at Folk Alliance in Montreal and were immediately entranced by her voice and songwriting. We had her scheduled for a house show here in Colorado, but the date coincided with the necessary lockdown due to the pandemic. Instead, Rachael gave us a lovely virtual Zoom concert for some 20 of our house show guests. Not as good as live, but her concert gave us all a needed boost at the beginning of this new normal. As I note in the introduction, this podcast is not inherently political, but folk music has always been connected to the political realities of the time. We talk about the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as living under a pandemic, but we also talk about Rachael's art and creative process.

We hope that listeners will enjoy the podcast, but also will find ways to support independent artists like Rachael. You can find out more information about her at her website: https://rachaelkilgour.com/home, and if you would like to purchase some merch, visit www.rachaelkilgour.bandcamp.com. Or, if you would simply like to support her work, her Venmo is @Rachael-Kilgour and her PayPal is rachaelkilgour@gmail.com
