Also check our my short series on my youtube channel (Mandolicious Music) called "Tarp Life with Tara." There are a number of episodes that hope to inspire folks to create and enjoy the creations of others with elements of hillbilly architecture (I often refer to as Tarpitecture) and Appalachian style innovations.

Also if you look on my youtube channel (Mandolicious Music) and put in "Tara Linhardt interview" you will also find some other fun interviews. I just pulled out a few of my favorites here to get you going on the topic. If you have any comments or enjoy any of my videos on youtube please "like" them and leave a comment and let me know what you think. I love hearing from folks who watch them and hearing what you think. I hope to entertain, inspire, educate, and sometimes amuse as well as highlighting artists that I think deserve to be highlighted. 

I also have a series on youtube called "The Treasured Word" Series where I interview native speakers of lesser known and often endangered languages. This series I began while living in Bhutan, which is home to a number of endangered languages and cultures. I plan on continuing this series especially highlighting my region of expertise in the Himalayas, so stay tuned as more will be added.  If you subscribe to my email newsletters you may receive a notice as I add some new languages you can listen to and check out in an intro lesson.
