A Nice Interview with the Heatons
Fate and Shannon Heaton are to blame for me finding my musical home within Irish Traditional Music. It all started when one day I was driving in my car, listening to KUNC, our local NPR affiliate / university station and Matt & Shannon did a "live - in studio" appearance. I was so taken by Shannon's flute & whistle playing, I called Deb and told her that we had to go hear this Irish band I just heard on the radio... (The band being Siucra, which Matt & Shannon were a part of) They were on KUNC to promote a show they were doing in Ft. Collins later that night... Anyway... The rest is history. I just checked out their new (to me) website mattandshannonheaton.com and stumbled upon this delightful video interview with them... Click here to check it out. You might brew a cup of your favorite vice as it's fairly lengthy... Enjoy!
