Live & Direct Sessions

WYEP has a commitment to live music, and whenever we are able, we invite musicians to visit our performance space to play live. Live & Direct Sessions are when we bring in artists to play a handful of songs along with an interview about themselves and their music. Whenever possible, we invite an audience of WYEP's members to see the artist perform in an up-close and intimate setting.
