Jesse Lundy has been a key fixture in the Philadelphia concert biz for two and a half decades. He’s put on huge shows, intimate shows, rubbed elbows with music royalty, curated the bill at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, booked the legendary Main Line venue The Point, and helped out li’l ol’ me on many occasions, even against his better judgement.. like when I named a short-lived songwriting collective the “Semen Brothers” back in the early aughts. He's also an accomplished guitarist, who plays regularly in the city with numerous bands. Throughout the pandemic, he’s been a straight shooter, a mensch, a friend, always honest, invariably entertaining. He’s got stories, he's got opinions, and he's not afraid to share them. Hope you enjoy our conversation in which we discuss rock star run-ins, how many books he can read in a year, and how we're both fairly certain that getting murdered is how we're going to die!
Enjoy our convo from Greg's Kitchen in the lovely Manayunk section of Philadelphia!
