The Churchill podcast features artists, musicians, filmmakers, athletes, restoration info and more.

Jon Langford is our guest today on the podcast. He's a founding member of the Mekons and since the man creates more music than any one band could possibly hold, he's also the guiding force in the Waco Brothers, the rarely convened collective of the Pine Valley Cosmonauts, the Skull Orchard and Wee Hairy Beasties. At any given time, he might have a few other irons in the fire, or plates in the air, or pies in the oven, or cubes in the tray. It tires us just trying to keep up. $8 in advance $10 at the door.  All Ages and kids 10 and under get in Free.

 

Jon is also one of our featured artists for the month of June. Here's a link to his artwork.
