Peter Ostroushko is a gifted musician best known for his mandolin and fiddle playing and as the musical director for A Prairie Home Companion. We sat down with Peter recently and had a wide-ranging discussion about music, dancing, and culture. In this four-part series you can hear Peter’s thoughts on music, culture, food, and playing for dances. And you’ll get to hear some great tunes.
