On Sunday, April 7 at 12 p.m., Michelle will interview Justin Trawick, a MASC award-winning songwriter who is also the founder of The 9 Songwriter Series, a touring live music event based in Washington, DC.  Each installment features nine solo singer/songwriters performing in rotation and often sitting in with each other, providing audiences with a rich, intimate, varied listening experience.  To date, over 60 different artists have participated in "The 9", at events in DC, Arlington, Bethesda, Baltimore, Annapolis, New York City, Richmond, Charlottesville, Charlotte, and Philadelphia. In addiition to organizing the shows, Justin is a multi-talented performer, expertly balancing between roles as a solo singer/songwriter and band front man. His self-described brand of “Urban Folk Rock” inspires comparisons with troubadours such as Bob Schneider, Ryan Adams, and G. Love. He has performed at such notable venues as the world-famous Kennedy Center, DC’s own 9:30 Club, Antone’s in Austin, The Knitting Factory in New York City, Philly’s World Cafe Live, and Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles. Along the way, he has shared the stage with artists such as Bob Schneider, Blues Traveler, Sara Bareilles, Brett Dennen, Pat Green, Edwin McCain, KC & the Sunshine Band, and the Ying Yang Twins.
On the show, Michelle will speak with Justin about his music, and the 9 Songwriter Series, including the upcoming show at the Golden Bull Café on April 12.
