This Friday, the XPoNential Music Festival kicks off a weekend of music on the Camden Waterfront – three days, three stages, and more than 30 performances. At the River Stage at Wiggins Park on Friday, New Jersey guitar legend Billy Hector will ring in the festival with his signature style, a combination of Rock & Roll and Jersey Shore Blues. He’s played with artists like Bonnie Raitt and B.B. King, and made 14 albums – all while performing regularly on the small club circuit for more than 35 years. This podcast features an interview with Billy Hector, and two in-studio performances: “People of the World” and “Rita.”
