Episode 9: Keith Pitzer

UPDATE: Due to some emergent events in the Pitzer's daily life, they have been forced to bow out for this year. But they have referred us to a fine replacement for our Saturday night entertainment in the form of Ron Sowell. Check out our blog for the details.)

Episode 9, the first of our two, count `em, TWO work-week bookending podcasts we're releasing this week. In this episode we talk to Keith Pitzer of the singing duo Keith & Joan Pitzer.

Keith is not only leading a workshop on songwriting at the conference this year, he and Joan are returning to the Saturday night entertainment stage. Attendees last year remember them for their amazing concert with our podcast's music provider, Pops Walker.

We talk to Keith about the craft of songwriting, his history in music, his influences and we hear a couple of Pitzer tunes as well.
