This afternoon, Greta Van Susteren, host of the primetime news and interview program, "On the Record" which broadcasts on Fox News 10-11 p.m. ET/PT Mondays through Fridays came out to Wolf Trap to film an interview with Ian Anderson, front man and flautist for the legendary Jethro Tull. I wasn't within earshot for the majority of the interview, but my understanding is that most of the conversation revolved around Anderson's friendship with Tony Snow, former White House press secretary and colleague of Greta's as a former Fox News anchor. Snow was a long time Jethro Tull fan who at one point shared the stage with the band as a fellow flautist! Snow was no amateur, the man had some serious skills. See for yourself by hopping onto youtube.
We hope to have Greta and her crew out here again a few more times this summer for interviews, as her show is wonderful national exposure for Wolf Trap and our schedule of perfomers. Our house photographer Eleena took some great shots of the interview, which I will post tomorrow, along with some backstage shots of Hippiefest touring members I acquired from professional photographer Michael Stewart.
Enjoy tonight's show!
