Sarah Bryan

We talk with Sarah Bryan about her life as an independent folklorist and Editor-In-Chief of The Old Time Herald, which often takes her on the Southern road in search of stories, 78 LPs, antique photographs and other phantoms. She stops, of course, from time to time. To play the fiddle and take her own photographs.

Marcus’ next installment of Aging Cheerleader, which begins with John Jeremiah Sullivan, John Fahey, and Jack Rose, sets him off on a chase for his own musical phantoms before returning him to Jack Rose’s resting place.
