Wild Child: Ukulele In Hand, Heart On Sleeve

This week on "Musicians' Spotlight:" “Wild Child doesn’t want a place to hide. Song after song, town after town, they’ll wear their hearts on their sleeves, addicted to the rush that only comes when thousands of strangers know all their secrets and sing them back, because they’re the audience's secrets, too.”  

Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins front this band from Austin that features ukulele, violin, keyboards, bass, drums, trumpet and cello, and they sit down for a conversation with host John Floridis in the renovated green room of Missoula’s Wilma Theater.

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight,"  11/12/15 & 3/31/16. Listen weekly online or on your radio Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., 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.
