Carolyn Brodginski on the dulcimer, Americana, and music as therapy

September 2, 2019

Maybe you can't picture what a dulcimer is just by hearing the word, but odds are that you'll recognize the sound when you hear Carolyn Brodginski play the instrument. It's something I've always considered rather rare, but as Carolyn points out it has been present in popular music for decades. And its distinctive sound is both joyful and soothing. Carolyn's band, Seat of Our Pants, features her dulcimer in their Americana sound, including on the band's latest release, "Song of Rabble and Roots", available now at You can also pick up Carolyn's solo recordings at

Scott Stephen Kegler is a playwright and a clown ... and does just about everything else that involves a stage or an audience. When I saw a production of his play, Champaign and Licorice, I knew I need to speak with him about his work. There is depth and authenticity in his writing, and it was a great please to be able to speak with him about it.
