World Cafe Playlist for 06/25/2020

Margaret Glaspy joins host Raina Douris

Margaret Glaspy saw success a couple years ago with her debut album, Emotions and Math, and now she’s back with the follow-up, Devotion. Today, she shares how she allowed herself to be vulnerable, despite the pressure that comes with releasing a second album, and how learning new things affects the songwriting process. Glaspy’s been learning quite a bit during self-isolation – Reading up on fashion designer, Alexander McQueen, and she enrolled in distance learning at Harvard. We’ll hear all about it, along with a live performance.
