The Western Reserve – Gladden House Sessions at the Nelsonville Music Festival (2014-2017) – Episode 17

Another amazing Nelsonville Music Festival (produced by Stuart’s Opera House) just finished up and we thought it made sense to have an NMF episode of The Western Reserve! Episode 17 brings you some of the wonderful Gladden House Sessions hosted by Josh Antonuccio and presented by Ohio University School of Media Arts and Studies, WOUB Public Media, and the Nelsonville Music Festival. Lots of Ohio artists and folks with Ohio connections in this show, but a few non-Ohioans too. Music from Saintseneca, Cloud Nothings, Adam Torres, Zeb Dewar, Justin Gordon, J.D. Hutchison, Big Thief, and many more. Enjoy an audio visit to Robbins Crossing and the sounds of NMF. Check out all the videos here!
