Stories from the Stage

Sound Check

Season 07  Episode 9

Music has the power to define our narratives. Each chord strummed or note belted out is as much about shaping identity as it is about the art itself. Melissa Ferrick takes a gig as the opening act for the enigmatic Bob Dylan in an evening charged with history and expectation; Jeffrey Foucault delivers a perfect show to a deserted bar in Des Moines, Iowa, and learns a little about art and fame; and Jason Prokowiew finds his voice and emerges into the spotlight revealing not just a singer, but a young man coming into his own. Three storytellers, three interpretations of SOUND CHECK.
