This bonus episode of Tell Me About Your Song features outtakes from my discussion with composer Steven Jobe, in which we talked about the hurdy-gurdy, an interesting instrument that Jobe often makes use of.
This episode features excerpts from Jobe's compositions 'Bacchanal', which can be seen online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-kKuefw2G4, and 'Heather Lane', which is online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3PTuJEZyZU. The final song is an impromptu performance by Pumpkintown accompanied by the Bosch Hurdy-Gurday; that performance is online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKoaw8CfZb0.
More information about Jobe's music can be found on his website at http://www.stevenjobe.com/. You can hear his discussion of his opera 'The Legend of the Fairy Melusine' at http://yoursongpodcast.tumblr.com/post/125748868295/for-tell-me-about-your-song-51-composer-steven.
