In this New Bedford Now edition of Ground Control, Steven Froias talks to Carl Simmons, New Bedford’s grassroots renaissance man. Carl is an artist, musician, and a local historian who digs into the lesser-known stories of our great city.
In this conversation you will learn about the legacy of Daniel Ricketson and the New Bedford connection with Thoreau, Emerson, and other Massachusetts intellectuals. You’ll also get to hear a lovely music track from Carl and his thoughts on the songwriting process.
