About this Artist

The Wrens

The Wrens are Charles Bissell, Kevin Whelan, Greg Whelan, and Jerry MacDonnell (who couldn’t make it this night, so Chuck Scott filled in on drums and also introduces this episode). Their release, The Meadowlands, appeared in the Best Albums of 2003 lists by the likes of Magnet Magazine, Pitchfork Media, CMJ, KEXP in Seattle, and many more. The fanfare is well-deserved—the music is exceptional and the band is lovely.

About the interview

Notes:

This interview took place at Mary Chung’s, my favorite Chinese restaurant in Cambridge. I was fortunate to have filmmaker, Ellie Lee, on camera. A good time was had by all.
