Improvisations To Go

Join Todd Steed for a train ride around America in search of live music, the perfect cup of tea, and folks who love to share their local culture. 

Season One features trips to New Orleans and Memphis and offer interviews with Kermit Ruffins, Aurora Nealand, and Nick Spitzer.

Season Two will take us to D.C. and Baltimore via the rather empty night train from Atlanta. Expect museum musing, tea sippings, and a lot of superb music.
