Apr 02, 2014 — Just in time for the growing season, a new album filled with songs about gardening and rural life. Vermont folk singer/songwriter Pete Sutherland is best known as a member of the Clayfoot Strutters and Pete's Posse, and collaborating with young musicians at schools across northern Vermont. For years, Sutherland has been an artist-in-residence in schools, sharing old and new ballads and helping students shape family and community stories into songs. He'll lead a group of young Vermont musicians on an exchange trip to Northumberland, England, later this month.
Todd Moe talks with Pete about his latest album, "Farmland", which includes ten favorites from his collection of music created with the help of two youth advocacy organizations, the Young Vermont Singers and Young Tradition Vermont.
