WUNC's Songs We Love: Jacob Sharp of Mipso on Doc Watson & David Grisman

August 28, 2019

Songs We Love is a weekly podcast series partnership between Come Hear NC and WUNC that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. This week, Jacob Sharp of Mipso tells us why he loves Doc Watson & David Grisman's version of the Gershwin classic "Summertime."

"I was reflecting on childhood memories of what a joyous and freeing time summertime was. Though written by people who had very few relationships with the south its been brought to life by people who do and I think it really speaks to the North Carolina summer freedom," says Sharp.

Mipso plays a homecoming show at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh on Saturday, August 31st.
