Ground Control: Carl Simmons on making music and New Bedford’s lesser-known history

In this New Bedford Now edition of Ground Control, Steven Froias talks to Carl Simmons, New Bedford’s grassroots renaissance man. Carl is an artist, musician, and a local historian who digs into the lesser-known stories of our great city.

In this conversation you will learn about the legacy of Daniel Ricketson and the New Bedford connection with Thoreau, Emerson, and other Massachusetts intellectuals. You’ll also get to hear a lovely music track from Carl and his thoughts on the songwriting process.

You can hear all of the Ground Control podcast series on iTunes or SoundCloud.
