Friday night on PBS there is a new series called Sound Tracks — which I also host.
The show on Friday will feature Icelandic pop stars Of Monsters and Men….
… plus Julie Fowlis and her musical advocacy for the disappearing language she speaks in Scotland;
PLUS — Youssou N’dour and his bid to become president of Senegal…
Sound Tracks is a musical adventure — a new series we are producing for PBS that roams America and the world in search of the most compelling music, musicians and singers. Produced by The Talbot Players and KQED, San Francisco, Sound Tracks tells the stories behind the music and profiles the artists who create it.
A new one-hour episode of Sound Tracks airs nationally on PBS on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 9 pm (check local listings).
