Grandma Sparrow featured in Indy Week

Grandma Sparrow is featured in the latest issue of Indy Week. Surrounding his shows at the Pinhook in Durham, NC, Joe Westerlund tells all about the inspiration for his Grandma Sparrow character and his lifelong development of the record’s story. The feature interview talks about the magic that happens when Westerlund dons his costume and takes his place at the front of the stage, the impeccable backing band Canine Heart Sounds behind him.

“Grandma Sparrow is an attempt to rediscover childlike wonder by going somewhere you’ve never been, somewhere that doesn’t even exist.”
