Last week, the Recording Academy invited Nashville Arts Magazine to The Cannery Ballroom to meet The Lumineers. The Grammy Foundation hosted the event as part of educational outreach in the community. Local high school and college students were invited to an extended soundcheck with The Lumineers. The band also took part in a question and answer session with the crowd to teach kids about the music industry. Nashville Arts Magazine spoke to The Lumineers about their work with the Grammy Foundation and why music education is important to them. View the above video to hear the interview and view footage of the performance.
