ADID 20 - Cote Calmet
Formerly a Dublin resident and a mainstay in many bands and ensembles in Dublin, Cote Calmet popped in and had a chat about growing up in Peru, studying in Brazil, life in Dublin and life now in Granada. At the time of recording we had no idea what was ahead so a lot of this may seem quite dated. Talks of the future, of touring this summer, of festivals and all sorts. Bizarre to think how quickly it can all go away! Nonetheless there's a lot of wisdom in this episode from Cote. Well worth a listen.
