Last summer Sherman Holmes was interviewed by Talia Schlanger on WXPN‘s World Cafe about his first-ever solo album, The Richmond Sessions.  And if you missed the original broadcast you’ll have another chance to hear a one-of-a-kind interview.

Thursday, February 8, the full interview will be aired again in an encore broadcast. The session, recorded at In Your Ear Studios in Richmond, features Almeta Ingram-Miller, Cora Harvey Armstrong, Jared Pool, and Jon Lohman who join Sherman on cuts from the album, including this gem.

Schlanger takes time to discuss Holmes’ upbringing, his life-long relationship with music and the legacy of the Holmes Brothers. Sherman’s segment will air in the second hour of the program.
