Songs With Friends

This week on The Undercurrent, host Cole Tunningley presents stories about playing music with friends.

First, there is a piece on Rent Strike, a Lansing musician who plays politically charged folk music. Reporter Sana Hakim presents a full portrait of the artist, complete with biographical details and snippets from his oeuvre.

Lastly, we bring you a piece about Mint by Midwest, a small-town music festival in Michigan. The organizers, Brendan Seyka and Brant Boettger, talk about the DIY music community and the pleasure of bringing loud’n fast music to rural areas.
