Manage episode 350673035 series 3429404
In our series premiere, host Will Dailey takes you on a musical tour of Portland, Maine—the city Elvis was preparing to play on the night his reign came to an ignominious end. Some musicians couldn’t find it on a map. But the allure and beauty of Portland is that it doesn’t need you to know where it is. It already has everything it needs, whether you want bluegrass or blues, heavy metal or good ol’ rock and roll. Patty Griffin, Rustic Overtones, Weakened Friends, Ray Lamontagne: Before they were on your headphones, they were Made in Maine. You can catch the essence of Portland in one visit—we’ll show you how.
