About the podcast.

The fabric podcasts are sessions of words and music presented and compiled by a wide selection of musical luminaries; people who have dedicated their lives to creating and expressing the music we love to admire. This roster includes some artists who perform at our club and some who perhaps have never performed in any club, anywhere. Some are mentors, some are underrated champions of genres lost by time and trends, but they are all purveyors of good music, whatever that may be. We ask each host to simply play music that they love, that has inspired them regardless of genre and to explain to listeners why they've selected the pieces.

The fabric Podcast is lovingly produced by Folded Wing.
