253. Sean Timmons
Dan and Sean have both been highlighting Philadelphia artists for years. Sean shares his story of traveling to the US from Dublin for a summer job at Appel Farm Arts and Music Center in the late 80s, and deciding to stick around (Sean calls it "the longest summer of my life"). From his days creating and booking the Appel Farm Arts and Music Festival to artist management and talent buying, to founding Addison Artists this year, Sean has also involved himself in Philly non-profits like PhillyCam, iCreate, and more. Dan and Sean talk about the importance of the community, or "ecosystem", as Sean calls it, and how you have to give back if you want to be part of it all.
