Freeformers w/ Susan Voelz (ep. 4)

She’s not the first violinist who’s played with a rock band. But if you’re from Chicago or Austin, she is undoubtedly the ONE violinist who has stood out during the past 30 years or so – Susan Voelz, the second most identifiable member of Poi Dog Pondering. She has toured, recorded and performed live with a wide range of artists, from Alejandro Escovedo and John Mellencamp to Sufjan Stevens. She’s written a book about life on the road, and she’s currently the President of the Recording Academy’s Chicago Chapter.
On the first day of Spring, she visited us at Noteworthy studios to be Jon Langford’s guest on Freeformers, a program that originates on the Noteworthy Freeform channel. It’s subsequently available ON DEMAND right here on the Noteworthy Diversions page. Hear Susan play songs from her solo albums, including one comprised of Prince covers. And she’ll debut two unreleased songs from her forthcoming LP, Arrival of Ancestors. Listen to her & host Jon Langford compare notes about their mutual favorites in Chicago, Austin and beyond. Stellar recordings and conversation about music and life. Visit Susan’s revamped website HERE.
