92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Freedy Johnston


Freedy Johnston, the Los Angeles Times wrote, is “midwestern and spectacularly unflashy,” who “won critics’ hearts and some fame in the early 1990s with intensely crafted songs about adulthood’s curveballs: rebound romances, gambling losses, the drudgery of doing time for crimes of the heart.”

Freedy is playing 92YTribeca on September 30.

Today, he is the subject of the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A, where we discovered he is an easy interview, subscribes to Milwaukee Home and Fine Living and High Times, and has a life size plaster buffalo in his home.
