Ian McCartor has spent years working in hospice as a registered nurse incorporating his background in musical composition and visual arts to develop the services of Legacy Songs and Ashes Portraits. It was amazing to hear Ian share more about his process of crafting a song to commemorate the life and wisdom of a person as they transition on. Our conversation brought up some really beautiful reflections on life, death, grief and music, all of which are universally shared experiences.

The World Music Podcast Jingle- composed by Will Marsh featuring musicians Josh Mellinger (tabla) and Misha Khalikulov (cello).
