Episode 61: Finding Her Words – Ira Wolf

Hosted by Laura Hughes

We meet with traveling musician Ira Wolf at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado when she unexpectedly made the journey down from Alaska to play at a singing/songwriting competition. For Ira, making the trip was more than about striving for first place. It was about challenging herself to find her words.

Tune in for travel stories, artist insight, and more. We also share a brand new song of Ira’s, which she played live in Telluride at the competition!
