An interview with Made in Vermont commissioned composer Derrik Jordan

The Made in Vermont Music Festival tour is bringing something a little different on the road with it this year: a piece about the Abenaki myth of Odzihozo, and Abenaki descendants to tell the story before each performance. This year's Made in Vermont commissioned composer, Derrik Jordan of Putney (who describes his music as positive pop and globally-conscious soul), sits down with Alan Jordan to discuss his roots, the history of Lake Champlain, and Odzihozo.
