Wendy talks with The Artist Index performing artists host, Scott Bishop, about her background, music, travels, and lots more. The next production of the New Bedford Festival Theatre is Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on July 21 through July 30, 2023

The Artists Index continues using Zoom and our studio at the Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place in New Bedford.

We accommodate our guests’ schedules and record location/resources preference due to Covid’s continuing presence to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes or because they don’t live in the South Coast of Massachusetts.

The whole concept of The Artists Index and our journey is still in the making and very organic. If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
