The Ladles are out on tour and it was our good fortune that they stopped by the WOOL-FM studio to play and chat. There’s a rare confluence of strong writing, really interesting arrangements, and all-around goodness happening with these three. And they’re on the rise: their debut EP is fresh out, they’re on the Sound Of Boston short list of bands to watch in 2016, and they won the Grassroots Festival band contest just the other day.

Sabrina, Robyn, and Kimberly came in for a lively discussion about the upcoming Springfield Steampunk Festival, September 23 – 25 (aka “The Last Weekend in Vermont”). It’s gonna be big, big fun. More info at www.springfieldvtsteampunkfest.com
Lara Herscovitch was on her way back from playing at Vermont’s big annual Solarfest, and her route happened to go by WOOL-FM… so we switched on the tractor beam and pulled her in for what turned out to be a really inspiring conversation.
