From The Palmer Home To The JazzFest Stage…To Pike County?

Wednesday morning, Dave had the pleasure of a visit from Will Rivers, an alumnus of the Palmer Home for Children. After leaving the Palmer Home, he went on to great things, playing with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristoffersen, the Almann Brothers and more, and had the longest tenure as an invited performer at the New Orleans JazzFest of any solo performer in its history…25 years!

And now, he calls Magnolia, Mississippi home, and he sat down with Dave to talk about what the Palmer Home meant to him, and the incredible journey it allowed him to take in his life. You can hear the first segment of the show here:
