TMN Weekender

The Getaway

Thanksgiving is next week, and while I do enjoy hanging out with my family and in-laws, there always comes a point when I just want to lock myself in an empty room and tune out for an hour with my iPod or a good book.

TMN contributor and musical omnivore Patrick Ambrose brings together my two favorite escapes: good tunes and good writing. If you, too, need to get away for a bit during the holiday, here are six of his musician profiles, ready to read here on TMN or in an e-book you can export to your Kindle, iPad, iPhone, etc.
