Michael Hurley Interviewed on NPR!


“It’s a confluence of traditional folk music and, um, drugs, basically, with the latter having a very active influence on the former,” Pete Stampfel of The Holy Modal Rounders describes of Michael Hurley’s music.

Joel Rose conducted a fantastic interview with Michael Hurley on NPR recently, in which the wily songsmith discusses everything from drawing cartoons to picking green beans. Chris Smith of Espers is interviewed as well as the above-quoted Pete Stampfel who share insights and admiration for folk’s last genuine drifter and hobo sage.
