In April Utah Public Radio reporters spent two days training with national Peabody Award-winning producers The Kitchen Sisters. The workshop has resulted in a series of storytelling projects, including this one from arts and entertainment reporter, Mikey Kettinger, who spoke with musician Kathy Foster. Foster is a female bass player for the Thermals. The American indie band, based in Portland performed this past spring in Salt Lake City.
Foster says she takes her role as a female artist seriously, and so do her fans who say she uses her bass playing to inspire young female artists.
