On this episode of Strings and Things, Angela Babin drops by to work on a Melody Maker that hasn’t been out and about in years, while host Patrick Grant restrings his studio-weary Les Paul.
Angela has been performing live since she was 13 years old in many different venues, from Folk City and CBGBs, to BAM and the Berlin Jazz Festival. She entered the downtown New York music scene playing with Off Beach and the Ordinaires while she was a teenager, and has played guitar, tres, and bass on recordings for many varied musical projects. Currently, Angela is gleefully playing guitar with the Gotham Roots Orchestra.

She'll describe some of the musical games she played with her father, who was himself a child prodigy, and she’ll tell us how her fascination with numbers inspired her current musical project.
