When Nathan Poppe told me about this crazy-cool story of a woman flying halfway across the world for a concert, I had to find out more. We started emailing back and forth - and I was hooked and determined to tell this woman's story.
So, why did she travel across the globe for the music of an Oklahoma man? The answer is different than I expected. Turned into a lovely story of hope.
Nathan and I tag-teamed this one not really knowing what to expect. We rolled into Guthrie, Oklahoma, early May 1, 2015. Lorna Dixon was an absolute treat and great to get to know. We filmed the interview the morning of the Queen of the Prairie Festival. Then stuck around for a live performance from JD McPherson and his band. Then for the big headline show that night. It was a long, crazy day and I think we walked away with a pretty compelling story.
I'm honored to have met Lorna and quite pleased with the outcome of this video. Definitely one of my favorites of the year!
