Rhythm Encounter 59 – Winter Warmer II: The Wintering

Rhythm Encounter 059 - Winter RPGs

Today we’re getting cozy and seasonally appropriate as the two Mikes and Alana discuss some excellent wintery tracks. It’s amazing how various instruments can come together to convey a wide variety of winter atmospheres; that and the abundance of good winter/snow themed music make this a topic worth revisiting. Get your mittens and hats ready, because we’re discussing tumultuous wintery tracks as well as some more peaceful favorites! We can all enjoy them with the knowledge that listening to these songs will NOT result in having to shovel the driveway. 

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Alana Hagues, Michael Sollosi; Edited by Mike Salbato
