Hailed by Living Blues as “a serious talent”, New York guitarist, singer and songwriter Chris Bergson plays at 92YTribeca tomorrow evening, along with Tony Leone and Mulebone. Chris is not only a killer guitarist, he also teaches guitar here, uptown at 92nd Street Y.
Bergson was gracious enough to answer our Culture Klatsch Q&A that pries deep into our subjects, looking at their culture and media diets. Spolier alert: he prefers reading physical copies of books.

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I use both a fair amount although like many people, I’m not a big fan of Facebook’s new layout with the ticker in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Sometimes you miss stuff when you don’t go on there. It’s a funny sign of the times that I learned of both the birth of my best friend’s daughter this year and the breakup of a couple I’m friends with on Facebook. Sometimes I wonder if there’s going to be a privacy backlash down the road!
