Episode 52: Anders Beck Part 2 (Greensky Bluegrass)

Inside Out w/ Turner and Seth

Seth and Rob spend part of the intro talking about Benny “Burle” Galloway who is discussed extensively in this portion of the interview, and who is part of this podcast’s third live event at City Winery on March 28. In the interview we hear about the young Anders Beck heard a dobro come out of a tent at Telluride Bluegrass and was lured over first to the tent, and then to the world of a dobro. He would quickly dive in and become a rabid learner, and with extensive practice and the strict and candid tutelage of Sally Van Meter he was able to raise above the significant “virtuosity bar” of the bluegrass world. We learn about an inspiring Leftover Salmon show and his early days in Broke Mountain and how a fortuitous encounter while working in a music store would become the genesis for the Wayward Sons. This is the interview when Rob dubs Benny “Berle” Galloway the “Col Bruce of Colorado” (which has morphed into “Colorado Colonel.”) as Anders talks extensively about how he was influenced by this low-key enigmatic Colorado icon. The discussion moves briefly to songwriting in general and how writing credits are handed out, before returning to his formative days in the Wayward Sons. We even hear about how around how Anders would ultimately ask to join a band that he had onced judged at a contest, Greensky Bluegrass. Rob’s Nathan Moore "Hippie Fiasco" shirt leads to a conversation about how Anders and his bandmate Paul Hoffman had met Turner while hanging out for hours at “The Spot” on JamCruise. Anders also offers some insight about collaborating with Phil Lesh on Grateful Dead AND Greensky Bluegrass material and how the band goaded him to “take the reigns” a little bit. We also talk about he inspired by his philanthropic parents (who knew Arthur Ashe and started many tennis related non-profits) and girlfriend Hilary (who started a Colorado company to help businesses define their charitable goals and connecting them with appropriate non-profits). wTnS is Produced by Rob Turner, with this episode produced by both he and Seth Weiner, and Engineered by Josh Thane of Wonder Dog Sounds Studio. www.joshthaneproductions.com www.wonderdogsounds.com wTnS is a proud sponsor of the Osiris Podcast Network.

Episode 51: Anders Beck Part 1 (Greensky Bluegrass)

Inside Out w/ Turner and Seth

This episode Seth and Rob excitedly announce their upcoming live event at City Winery on March 28. This event features Benny “Burle” Galloway and the subject of this interview, Greensky Bluegrass dobroist Anders Beck. The hosts chatted with him backstage at The Tabernacle before the band’s wonderful show there last fall. They talk about the way Greensky had on their previous Atlanta visit honored legendary Phish shows which had happened in the same room 24 years previous to Greensky's January visit there. We also hear about Mike Gordon attending one of Greensky’s previous Atlanta shows. We learn how much effort the band puts into their setlists, Beck speaks of the significance of the “One Up” in Denver and he also shares the unusual evolution of the song “In Control” as well as a triumphant moment in the studio while recording, “Living Over.” We also learn some of his views on improvisation, about the influence of Leftover Salmon and his feelings about working with the excellent producer Steve Berlin. There are also great stories throughout, including one in which a certain scolding the band received at San Francisco’s Fillmore turned into a moment of celebration. wTnS is Produced by Rob Turner, with this episode produced by both he and Seth Weiner, and Engineered by Josh Thane of Wonder Dog Sounds Studio. www.joshthaneproductions.com www.wonderdogsounds.com wTnS is a proud sponsor of the Osiris Podcast Network.
