Sometimes the story that’s the thing is a video. I recently took a cruise to Havana Cuba, with the attraction being, well, Havana, and the wonderful singer-songwriter Susan Werner. Along the way, I interviewed her, talking about her songs inspired by past trips to Cuba. This video marks the debut of a new web show called “THE LISTENING ROOM,” featuring intriguing people put into a room and listening to them about what they do (and think and sing and more).
In this case, the listening room was a cabin on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship somewhere between Havana and Miami (my first oceanic interview). I interspersed the interview with shots I took while in Cuba. Let me know what you think.
Werner performs Saturday, March 9, in a Woody Hawley Series concert at the Clay Center in Charleston, W.Va.
