Episode 5: "I'll drink to that!" with guest Cécile McLorin Salvant
IN THIS EPISODE:
In this episode of Harmony & Hijinks, the ladies of the vocal trio Duchess interview Grammy-winning vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant. We discuss Cécile's journey as a singer, the Thelonious Monk competition and how, according to Cécile herself, she never wins anything. We also talk about the relationship between Cécile's visual art and her music, as well as feminism and her band, and Cécile answers the Duchess questionnaire. Then, we open some fan mail asking about one of our favorite subjects, food, which leads to reminiscing about our favorite tour meals. The episode closes with a new segment called "I'll Drink to That," in which we concoct (and drink, of course!) a favorite cocktail, the Aperol Spritz.
