Episode16 - A Musical Pilgrimage by The Camino Podcast published on 2016-05-29T18:51:43Z Pilgrimage has long held a close connection with music, but the present is showing signs of recapturing the brilliance of its medieval peak. This episode features three distinct manifestations of that trend. First, Ellen Waterston (www.writingranch.com) discusses the upcoming world premiere of her Camino opera, Vía Láctea, taking place in Bend, Oregon June 10-12. Then, Dane Johansen, an acclaimed cellist, shares his story of walking the Camino Francés with his cello on his back, performing in churches along the way (www.walktofisterra.com). Finally, Frederick Sheppard talks about the Camino Artes initiative (www.caminoartes.org), which organizes an extensive series of concerts along the meseta (and beyond) each summer.
