Passion for recording in Norwich

  • ">

    Chad Finer, 75, of Norwich, middle, signals that he is ready to record as Joe Saroyan, 13, left, and his dad John Saroyan, right, of Norwich, warm up their instruments upstairs at Dan and Whit’s in Norwich, Vt., on Sunday, Jan. 16, 2022. Finer began filming Upper Valley musicians and posting the performances to his YouTube account in 2016 when he retired from his career as a physician. After the start of the pandemic, he posted a performance a day for 450 days and has published over 1,000 recordings to date. "I've always had an interest in listening to music - not playing music," said Finer. "I toyed with the idea of going to work with Alan Lomax," he said of the folk music documentarian.
