For his new book Wherever the Sound Takes You: Heroics and Heartbreak in Music Making, David Rowell set out on a long search to explore the essence of music’s meaning. Through portraits of a vast spectrum of players, he tries to understand their connection to their chosen instrument, what they’ve put themselves through for their music, and what they feel when they play. Rowell, a journalist at The Washington Post, was born and raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina. For this reading, he will be accompanied by Bob Funck, a singer-songwriter in Durham, North Carolina who plays an eclectic brew of Americana folk-rock. His debut album, “Waiting for The Rain” came out in 2015, and he is the co-founder of NC Songsmiths, a collective of premiere songwriters from North Carolina. Rowell and Funck grew up together, and the final chapter of Whenever the Sound Takes You centers around Funck’s first solo tour.
