When we first published our site years ago, the artist page (yep, there was just one back then) received plenty of traffic. It contained very little information other than our artists’ horn specs, but that didn’t stop many of us from visiting every few days or weeks. Some used the information it contained to figure out trends. For others, it just satisfied a curiosity.
Over time, we added bios and the periodic artist feature or interview. We got busy building horns and the latter fell by the wayside, but we’re working to fix that. David Farmer, one of the new guys on the Edwards team, is going to interview an artist every month. We think it’ll be a great way to learn more about the people that play our horns. From time to time, we’ll even ask you to submit questions you’d like answered.
Our first artist interview is with Craig Mulcahy, principal trombonist of the National Symphony Orchestra. We’ll be posting his interview (and possibly a video) on our blog soon. We announce our posts on our Facebook page, so feel free to follow us there.
