From the Studio: Fall Folk Festival Studio Broadcast 2021, Part 1

Music Director Verne Windham and Kevin Brown of Front Porch Bluegrass host a two-hour program with music and interviews from folk performers.  This segment features Bagpiper Aaron Stratton, Drummer Kenyon Fields, Jen Edgren performing songs for kids of all ages on the guitar and charango, and Lyle Morse, also known as “Lonesome Lyle,” an acoustic guitarist, harmonica player and singer-songwriter-performer.

Jen Edgren performs songs for kids of all ages.

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.
