Special episode devoted to the 28th annual High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, California, happening July 5 – 8. The 4-day event will feature Jam Session favorites like the String Cheese Incident, Lotus, Lettuce, Chris Robinson Brotherhood and more. We chat with festival producer Rebecca Sparks, who shares her ultimate “pinch me” moment with Robert Plant, drops some knowledge for High Sierra first timers, and beautifully acknowledges the festival’s “incredibly hard-working” staff. A little later in the episode we chat with the Motet’s lead singer, Lyle Divinsky, who spills the beans on a new album, raves about High Sierra, and digs into the inspiring community that surrounds the band and our music scene.
