With the Waking Windows music festival in Winooski coming up, we take the opportunity to listen in on Vermont's big and broadening music scene: from rock to funk to EDM to hip hop.
Brent Hallenbeck, arts and entertainment reporter for the Burlington Free Press joins us, along with Juliana Wilson, editor-in-chief of Cider Magazine.
We also talk to Paddy Reagan of the Waking Window festival and James Lockridge of Big Heavy World, a Burlington-based non-profit that supports local music.
Broadcast live on Thurs., April 30, 2015 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
