More FFM musing

Here’s (my new friend!) Andy Whitman’s write-up on the Festival of Faith and Music.  

Andy is a brilliant, sweet man who writes for Paste and the All Music Guide, among others.  Matt and I were privileged to spend the entire afternoon with him on Saturday, after a long and spirited discussion on music journalism and criticism with Terry Mattingly, Director of the Washington Journalism Center.  

Andy’s words are, as always, full of passion and poetry and all of the other things that make you keep reading other peoples’ writing.  And you have to love a piece on the Festival of Faith and Music that begins “Fuck the unemployment statistics.”  

Keep typing.
