Singer-songwriter John Wesley Harding, a.k.a. author Wesley Stace, stopped by to discuss his new novel, Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer, about an early-20th-century opera composer whose career is cut short by a scandalous murder-suicide. Wes performed the folk ballad "Little Musgrave," which figures prominently in the novel's plot. He also shared two new tunes from his forthcoming, made-in-Portland album.
Following the approx. 50 minute interview is a brief snippet of British folk legend Nic Jones' "The Flandyke Shore"; Wes paid tribute to Jones on the great 1999 album, Trad Arr Jones, on which he first performed "Little Musgrave".
