Marian is a Baltimore-based folk songwriter who leans to enunciating precise details of botanical and zoological fables over fingerpicked classical guitar. At the Dupont Underground she was able to bring her full ensemble of bandmates and collaborators to create the nuance and richness of her latest ecological record Lake Accotink.
On her new album Lake Accontink, Marian McLaughlin invites the listener along on her quest to try and make sense of the many ways in which we impact and are impacted by the environment, and what it all may mean in the long run. We’re sitting down with the Baltimore-based musician to talk about what inspired her self-described “music for the Anthropocene Epoch,” the perils of capitalism in the modern age, the joy of playing in a room with one-hundred other guitarists and much more!
In our latest podcast (and last regular podcast for 2014) we sit down with the wonderfully unique Marian McLaughlin. Her sublime work on her debut Dèrive , released early in 2014, has led Marian and her musical cohorts from the smallest of smallest of house shows to being featured on NPR’s acclaimed Tiny Desk Concert series and back again. Kevin sat down with Marian to discuss what the future holds for the talented musician including her artspace/home The Holy Underground in Baltimore, her plans - including her in progress Kickstarter - for her second album Spirit House, and much much more.
It’s the last regular podcast of the year and we’re going out on a high note on ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast Episode 94!
