Music Today Interview Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode #352.

As part of our Music Today series, our guest is singer, songwriter, poet, Carrie Newcomer. This will be a very special show because our guest, Carrie Newcomer’s music is just wonderful. Carrie Newcomer has been called a “prairie mystic.” She’s best known for her story-songs like “Betty’s Diner,” which we’re listening to, now.

With Carrie Newcomer, you get at the raw and redemptive edges of human reality. Rolling Stone Magazine says, “Carrie Newcomer offers the bluesy warmth of her voice and the support of musicians who give these confessions an edgy propulsion. Rapturously tuneful, Newcomer’s material asks all the right questions and refuses to settle for easy answers.”

Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show, Carrie Newcomer.
