Can you go into a little detail about meeting and befriending John Hartford? Was there some sort of pilgrimage involved or did you cross paths unintentionally?
well pete wernick felt like it was his duty to introduce us. and so he did. it got to where when i would go through there [nashville] i would call him and go eat and jam and hang out. it was really nice being able to talk to him on the phone. he was very encouraging to me. he was a hero of mine.
I got a question about intellectual property rights. Due to the fact that you sample a lot of stuff, I figure you are pretty familiar with the rules regarding the acquisition of licenses using other artist's IPR's. I remember reading that you use shortwave radio for audio samples (which is a totally cool idea by the way) so how do you know what content you have to obtain licenses for? I suppose I'm also curious about covering "traditional" tunes on albums. If the composer is unknown, must you acquire a license?Danny Barnes responded on 10/14/2014 Next question
