Courtney Hartman has a new solo album this week, clearing. To celebrate, we threw her the keys to the Fretboard Journal Podcast and she will be interviewing some of her favorite people in the fretted instrument world on our show throughout the week.
In her first part she talks to Dana Bourgeois from Bourgeois Guitars. They discuss Dana’s initial love for the guitar, his fateful discovery of the Irving Sloane book, his relationship with Tony Rice, his building process, and more.
Find Courtney’s next interview in a few days. Jason will be back later this week and after a quick inspection for new scratches or dents on the capsule, we’ll talk to Courtney himself about the making-of clearing.
In the meantime, we hope you watch it (stream links). Courtney recorded it on the Colorado farm, where she grew up playing a range of instruments (some high-end, others cheap) and some special guest appearances (including Gregory Alan Isakov). If you’ve only heard Courtney Hartman’s bluegrass page, you’ll be delighted.
