We had some young musicians in the studio today who specialize in folk music. The Spokane-based group Hagerty Lane played a number of tunes and talked with Verne about their backgrounds and interest in playing this type of music.  The group is made up of members Cameron Ragsdale on guitar, Davide McGuire on flute/tinwhistle, Gabe Soileau on accordian/piano, and Rheva Meyre on fiddle.  Hagerty Lane will be playing at The Big Dipper in Spokane tonight, Friday, August 12 from 7:30-11:30pm.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
