Moira Smiley, Musical Polyglot

MoiraSmiley.png

Vocalist Moira Smiley balances a dizzying list of simultaneous projects: her own group VOCO; the indie rock band tUnE-yArDs; The Lomax Project; Irish supergroup Solas; and work with Billy Childs. But that's only part of her CV. TED presentations, symphonic performances, festival curation, and musical compositions for PBS and the BBC begin to fill out the picture of this musical powerhouse.

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight," 4/2/15 & 7/16/15. Listen on Thursday evenings at 7:30, or via podcast.)

John Floridis, the host and producer of Musician's Spotlight, has been with Montana Public Radio since 1997. He has interviewed over 200 musicians during that time. He is also an independent recording and performing artist in his own right and a former registered music therapist.
