CAP21 Steven Kai Van Betten

Max and I sit down with the ever-amiable, earnest, and buoyant Steven Van Betten. We spend the better part of the hour transfixed as he chronicles his recent adventures in Ghana and his harrowing bout with malaria. Along the way, we get the skinny on the origins of Fell Runner and on how the music and spirit of West Africa came to dominate much of his current output.

Intro/Outro: “After It All Falls Down”
Other excerpts:
“Lullaby” by Fell Runner
“Ya Ya Kole” transcribed/performed for guitar
